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.

MS Black Bear Caught On Cam

A trail camera set up in Simpson County by Justin Morgan took photos of the bear at about 1:25 a.m. on May 24 and again at 11:30 p.m. last Sunday.  

State wildlife officials said it's unusual to see black bears in this area of the state, and encouraged the resident to continue to keep an eye out for it.  

Mississippi is home to the American black bear, which the state lists as endangered, and the Louisiana black bear, which is listed federally as an endangered species.

There are about 100 black bears in Mississippi, according to state wildlife officials.
