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.

On The Hunt

Jackson Smith, 10, shot this spike deer while hunting with his father on private land in Claiborne County.  The buck weighed 140 pounds and was taken with a .44 magnum from 50 yards away.

Vicksburg resident Johnnie Clack used a .35 Whelen to take down this 11-point, 240-pound buck while hunting on private land December 11.  The deer's antlers measured 18-1/4 inches and scored 158 points on the Boone and Crockett scale.

Nine-year-old Sarah Grace Richardson bagged this doe while hunting in southern Warren County during the youth weekend.  The doe weighed 100 pounds and was taken with a .243 rifle from a distance of 100 yards.  Sarah Grace is the daughter of Joe and Tammie Richardson of Brandon.

Josephine Ricks took down this 12-point, 200 pound buck with a muzzleloader on December 5th. You go Josephine! My congrats to all our hunters in the great wild outdoors!
