Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc...
Stories of my hunting experiences with family, friends or whatever else I want to blog about.

A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

Youth On The Hunt

Recently when some baseball games were cancelled one father took a chance to share opening day of turkey season with his boys.  Vicksburg Warren School District Superintendent Chad Shealy shared his sons opening day accomplishment.  

Grayson and Mayson Shealy have played baseball since they were 3-years old and began travel ball at six. Inevitably Saturday mornings during turkey season always seemed to be occupied with a tournament.  Due to so much rain their previously scheduled baseball outing to Hattiesburg was cancelled.  So Chad jumped on the opportunity to take the boys on their first opening day ever.  

"During the early morning hours everything began to fall in place.  We set up in just the right spot, with five gobblers that liked what my call was saying.  They marched in at 30 yards and posed for an instant.  Then on the count of three, both boys landed their first turkeys and I had my best hunt ever, Chad said."

Congratulations to Gayson and Mayson for getting their first turkeys in our great wild outdoors!
