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.

Vicksburgers On The Hunt

Jillian Creel, 11, bagged her first deer while hunting on private land in southern Warren County.  The 7 pointer weighed 180 pounds and had a 15-inch spread. Jillian is the daughter of Alisha and Al Creel.

Husband and wife Shirley and Robert Henry each killed a deer in the last week.  Shirley Henry killed a 9-point buck with a primitive weapon in northern Warren County.  Her deer had main beams of 19-1/2 and 19 inches, a spread of 15-1/2 inches, bases of 4-1/2 inches, and weighed 200 pounds.
Vicksburg resident Robert Henry killed this 10-point buck with a primitive weapon on December 8 in northern Warren County.  The deer weighed 200 pounds, had a spread of 18 inches, a 5-1/2 inch base, and the main beams measured 22-3/4 inches and 22 inches.

Vicksburg resident Cade Walters shot this 8-point, 140-pound deer with a .308 rifle on private land in Bovina on November 18.  The deer's rack measured 16-1/2 inches wide and 16-1/2 inches on the main beam.  Cade is the son of Mark and Cathy Walters.

My congrats to all our Vicksburger's who hunted in our great wild outdoors!
