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.

200-Class Deer Allegedly Killed Illegally

A Louisiana man was recently cited by wildlife enforcement agents after they say he illegally killed a monster buck.

According to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, agents were called to a hunting club in Avoyelles Parish on Oct. 17 to measure a buck with a massive rack for record-keeping purposes. When agents arrived, club members informed them the giant was harvested by a guest hunter who may have been unlicensed.

Later that morning, an LDWF agent made contact with Glen Toups, Jr., 40, of Abbeville, Louisiana, and according to LDWF, Toups admitted to killing the deer with archery equipment. He also admitted to not having the proper hunting licenses or deer harvest tags. Authorities issued citations and seized the deer, which unofficially scored 208 inches.

Agents also learned Toup did not have the proper licenses because his hunting privileges had been revoked. According to LDWF, Toups faces up to $2,533 in fines and civil restitution plus up to 75 days in jail for harvesting the deer without licenses or tags.

Charges are pending on the hunting under a revoked license and conviction could bring up to 90 days in jail and up to a $500 fine.

LDWF reported the meat was donated to a charity and the head was kept as evidence.
