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.

A Great Catch!

Christian Stinson, 10, caught a blue catfish in the Mississippi River June 1.  He used a rod and reel, and with the help of his dad Clyde who netted the fish, he was able to catch it after 10 minutes.  The fish was estimated to be around 35 to 40 pounds.  

As you can see by the look on his face that he's very proud of his accomplishment.  It will be a great fish story that will remain with him the rest of his life.  My congrats to Christian on catching the big fish in our great wild outdoors!   ~The Vicksburg Post
