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 6-Year-Old Gets His First Deer!

Little man Graham got his very first deer an 8 point buck yesterday.  He is seen here with his little brother, Ben.  His Dad, Will Riddick of Inverness, MS, did a great job video taping him finding his deer and telling everyone what he used and taking pictures.  He had a great shot placement using 300 Blackout cartridge with 220 grain ammo.  A little man with a big gun!  Congratulations to Graham on a great harvest in our wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!

A Little Princess Very First Deer!


Danny Ray Moore of Carthage, Mississippi is so proud of his daughter (a little princess) in getting her very first deer! 

She finally got her deer after a few times hunting and holding off for a buck and wished he could have recorded her first impression which was priceless, he said. 

Congratulations to this "little princess" in getting her nice buck in our great wild Mississippi outdoors. 

A great shot placement plus her initiation as a hunter!  Way to go!

Bruce On A Roll!!!


Dustin McLeod's son, Bruce, killed him a few critters this past Youth Hunt Weekend in MS.  It is safe to say that he started the season off with a bang.  Dad said that he was shooting his 300wsm and had some long shots.  He normally shoots a 7mm08 but he told him that he wants his gun after shooting it but had to break the news gently that...that was not going to happen.


My congrats to Bruce on getting the job done in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!

Sunday Drive To Grand Gulf Park Continued...

I posted Monday and Tuesday about my Sunday drive to Grand Gulf Park and here are the last of the pictures I took.   

After Johnette and I drove through the Grand Gulf Military Park we saw a fishing camp down the road. Not sure the name of the fish camp but it looks like a lot of fun to belong to.  No one was around because more than likely the fishermen were in the woods hunting in our great wild and wonderful outdoors.  


High and Dry

Nice camper and love our flag on the pole.  

On To Vicksburg!

Sunday Drive to Grand Gulf Park Continued...

I posted yesterday about my Sunday drive to Grand Gulf Park and have some more pictures to share with you today. 

The observation tower across from the Old Grand Gulf Cemetery.

You could drive around the observation tower. I wish I was able to climb the tower but having a scheduled knee replacement next month was not a good idea. Maybe next time.  

Moss was hanging on most of the trees.

This little squirrel ran out in front of us and would not to let us go by.
  
Travel across the park and went down the River Road and saw M/V Dennis Ross heading northbound.

Close up of M/V Dennis Ross.
 
A picture of how pretty is was on this Sunday afternoon at the MS River.

Facing Louisiana!

Johnette waiting for me while I took pictures at the Mississippi River at Grand Gulf.

The supply depot.  Note the water marks on the doors.  Part of the Grand Gulf Park and this building went underwater in the 2011 MS flood.  


A close up of a broken window at the depot store.

Some pretty wildflower along the way to the fish camp.
To be continued.

A Sunday Drive to Grand Gulf Park

Yesterday, I took a Sunday drive to Grand Gulf Military Park with my friend, Johnette.  It was a beautiful day for a road trip and we had a good time.  I've been there before but it was about 20 years ago.  It's called the Grand Gulf Military Monument which is located at Port Gibson, MS. We toured the museum, dogtrot house with water mill, a church, cemetery, rifle pits, observation tower (did not climb up in it), gun emplacements, campgrounds with a pavilion and restrooms. We did not get to go through the carriage house which was located next to the museum. 

Afterwards, we drove across from the park onto the River Road and ended up at the Mighty Mississippi River.  Just missed M/V Dennis Ross making his way northbound and eventually passing our hometown of Vicksburg, MS. 

Below are some pictures I took and have more to share with you in the next two days.  So please come back and check it out.
