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.

Time-lapse Of Antlers Growth

Watch these two whitetail bucks grow huge antlers in 2 minutes.

These videos from the Mississippi State Deer Lab shows the antler growth cycle of two huge antlered bucks in their study group.

Deer drop their antlers at the end of winter and start growing them again during the spring.  It's interesting to watch a time lapse of the antler growth and MSU did a nice job with these two videos.

The first video is of a whitetail buck called Doc.  He grows a very impressive looking rack with a huge drop tine.



The next video is a whitetail buck called Meatball.  His rack doesn't grow quite as big as Doc's, but, it's still very impressive!
