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 Alligator Records Broken

 Kenny Crechale of Morton and Ronnie Clifton of Petal.

Davis Island - An alligator that was 14 feet, one-quarter-inch long and weighing 826 pounds broke Mississippi records that other alligators had set earlier that day for length and weight.

Ricky Flynt of the state Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks commented that it's the first officially documented in the state at more than 14 feet long.

He says it was shot Saturday by Kenny Crechale of Morton, hunting with Ronnie Clifton of Petal. Flynt says it was on private land, where permits let people take alligators during daylight with high-powered rifles.

Clayton Gibson, Parker Gibson, Reeve Gibson, and Aidan Gibson, all of Natchez, broke the state record for heaviest alligator with this 822-pound beast.

Earlier Saturday, Flynt had certified an 822-pound gator as the heaviest male harvested in the state.  Shortly after, Angelia Rivers of Ellisville, hunting with her husband, two daughters, a son-in-law and a daughter's boyfriend, for the longest gator measuring 13 feet, 7 3/4-inches.  

The public lands season lasts until noon on Labor day.  

The private land permits can be filled through 6 a.m. on September 21st.
