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.

Swamp Buck

Throw Back Thursday Picture:  Mitch Lawrence of Columbus, MS, took down this swamp buck on December 24, 2015, north of Columbus at 9:30 a.m. with an AR 15 in 6.8 at about 80 yards.  The buck ran for 20 yards and weighed 228 lbs., with a 24-inch spread. 

Congratulations to Mitch on a fine buck in our great Mississippi outdoors!

Yes, it was Gorges. One of the stands I really liked was near a swamp and always saw deer and even harvested deer there. One day while walking to the stand for an afternoon hunt, I had 4 waiting on me but of course they took off running!
