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.

Checking Out Chotard Landing

Yesterday, my daughter and I took a nice drive up to Chotard Landing and Resort which is located 20 miles north of Vicksburg, off of Highway 61 North.  Also, it is 24 miles on Highway 465 and sets on the banks of Chotard Lake, a Mississippi River Oxbow. Chotard Landing Resort offers a place of tranquility for the fisherman and outdoors person at heart. It is within driving distance of Mahanna WMA, Shipland WMA, Twin Oak WMA and Delta National Forest. 


They have a country store, live bait, tackle, ice, gas, MS hunting & fishing license, boat rental, boat ramp, clean rest rooms, laundry mat, tavern, live entertainment, scheduled cook outs, scheduled events, camping, RV parking, cabin/condo rental and annual rental spaces. 


Due to levee construction by Eagle Lake, detour directions were provided above to Chotard Landing Resort.





 
Leaves are changing and looks like fall is in the air.
