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.

Vicksburg's Youth On The Hunt!

Tate Cogan, 8, shot this 6-point deer on Davis Island while hunting with his father, Bo Cogan.  The 205-pound deer with a 16-3/4-inch spread was Tate's first.  Way to go Tate!

Shea Walls, 8, bagged his first deer while hunting with his uncle, Matt Bingham, at MLD Hunting Club in Utica on December 10.  The doe weighed 120 pounds.  Alright Shea!

Emily Phillips, 10, took this 9-pointer while hunting with her father in southern Warren County on November 26.  The deer weighted 192 pounds, had a 17-inch inside spread, and was shot with a .243 rifle from a distance of 30 yards.  Emily is the daughter of Chad and Zena Phillips.  Pictured with Emily is Chad Phillips.  You go Emily! 

My congrats to all our young hunters in the great wild outdoors!
