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 residents Ricky Hollowell Jr., James Nowell Sr. and Jason Nowell show off the gator they caught in the Yazoo Diversion Canal on September 15. It was 11 feet, 7 inches long, with a belly girth of 60 inches and a tail girth of 44 inches. It was estimated to weigh 600 pounds.
One of the hunters compares his hand to the gator's claw.
My congrats to Ricky, James and Jason on their fine catch in our great wild outdoors! Submitted to The Vicksburg Post
