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.

Two Alligator Seasons Ago


Jared Brister and his best friend of McComb, MS, snagged this 13 foot long alligator two seasons ago with a rod and reel.  He said they could not find any scales to get it's weight.  I would say that's a nice catch in our great wild Mississippi Outdoors on a rod and reel no less!

I wonder how many folks who kill gators actually eat them?

All the hunters I know of eat the food they kill. With an alligator you can also make shoes, purses, belts, etc! :)
