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.

Snakehead Fish Found In MS

BENOIT, MS:  An invasive fish has been documented for the first time in Mississippi.

The Mississippi Department of wildlife, Fisheries and Parks says a northern snakehead was caught Monday in Lake Whittington in Bolivar County.

Nathan Aycock, a fisheries biologist with the department, says Cleveland bow fishermen Brad Baugh and Bubba Steadman caught the snakehead in the oxbow lake.

Aycock says the Asian fish established itself in Arkansas' White River in 2008 and is expanding its range.  It can swim to other waters connected to the MS River.  Northern snakeheads are typically found in shallow backwaters and can breather air, letting then survive out of water for extended periods.

Aycock says it's unclear what impact snakeheads have on native fish.  It's illegal to transport, sell or keep live snakeheads in MS.
