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.

More State Closures On Hunting Season

Deer pushed out of their habitat north of Vicksburg, MS, April 2011 flood.

The state wildlife regulators are expanding an order closing all open hunting seasons, except waterfowl, for the duration of the current high water event along the Mississippi River because rising waters are forcing deer and other animals out of their natural habitat.

Effective at the closing of legal hunting hours on Sunday, hunting seasons to include wild hogs will close from Vicksburg south to Port Gibson, west of Highway 61; from Port Gibson south to Highway 84 in Natchez, west of the Natchez Trace and from Natchez, south to the state line, west of Highway 61.

Waters are not expected to recede until after the close of most opening hunting seasons.  Sunday's closure will remain effective until river levels drop or until the previously established ending date for the season - whichever occurs first.
