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.

Hunters Loading Up With A Tax-Free Weekend

With deer and turkey hunting season opening soon in Mississippi it's time for hunters to stock up on ammo or purchase a new gun for the season.  

This weekend, hunters will have the chance to save some money on their guns and ammo during Mississippi's statewide second amendment sales tax holiday.  

It started Friday at 12:01 a.m., through Sunday at midnight, with guns, ammo, and archery equipment being tax-free throughout the state.

Tax-exempt items include pistols, revolvers, rifles, and shotguns, as well as their respective ammo.  Also exempt is a wide range of archery equipment including bows, arrows, arrow rest, arm guards, quivers, and crossbows.  The tax-exempt list also includes hard and soft cases designed to carry firearms or archery equipment, hearing protection, scopes and holsters among the items.  

A full list of exempt and nonexempt items can be found at
by clicking on the Annual Second Amendment Sales Tax Holiday Guide link.
