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.

Alligator In Storm Drain


An alligator has been wrangled after crawling out of a storm drain in Louisiana.

WWL reports a 7-foot alligator emerged from a drain in Jefferson Parish on Monday after heavy rains.

The drain was located behind an elementary school that wasn't hold class because of spring break.

The alligator did move around, but Bucktown resident Hazel Porter described it as mainly "just chilling."

Video obtain by WWL shows a group of Bucktown residents detaining the alligator by lassoing its neck and tying the rope to a nearby pole as the creature thrashes.

Steven Nicholson, a witness, says wildlife professions arrived and taped its mouth shut.  The wranglers place the bound alligator in a pickup truck and planned to relocate it.
