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.

2011-12 Mississippi Sportsman License

The picture of two bucks fighting is on our MS Hunting License for 2011-12 deer season.  Every year it's a different scene from deer, turkeys, birds, squirrel, ducks, fox and an alligator.  The above was photograph by Joe Mac Hudspeth, Jr., who has a site at if you would like to view previous Mississippi Sportsman License and Duck Stamp prints.  

I started saving/collecting my license's cards back in 1997-98 season.  I wished now I had saved them all from the very beginning of hunting in 1986-87.  After you reach the age of sixty-five and older you are exempt from purchasing a hunting or freshwater fishing license.  Residents are exempt based on proof of age and MS residency in your possession while engaged in hunting and fishing activities.  You can voluntary purchased a Senior Exempt license which is a lifetime privilege, which I have done and keep in my hunter orange vest pocket.  My husband is disabled and he is also exempt and has to have proof of residency, disability status or other physical impairment in his possession while engaged in hunting and fishing activities unless an exempt license is purchased.  The Disabled Exempt license is an annual privilege.

If you're interested in finding out more about the rules and regulations of hunting and fishing in Mississippi, you can visit their website Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks.  Also, you can become a fan on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.  Happy Hunting and Fishing!

Very nice pictures on your hunting license. Our hunting card för one year is a very simple card. We pay SEK 300 a year.

DeanO a lot of rules and regs but that's part of hunting world. :)

Lindsjo taxar - The license cards have been very nice to have and to keep. You can also framed them and would make a nice collage.
