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 Youth On The Hunt

Breck Farrior of Learned, MS, got an early jump on turkey season by shooting this big tom at 6:19 a.m. on opening day of the youth only season on March 8.  Breck, 9, was hunting with his father, Bill, on a private lease in southern Hinds County.  The turkey weighed 19 pounds and had a thick 9-1/2 inch beard with 1-1/4 inch spurs.

My congrats to Breck on a fine looking turkey in our great and wild outdoors!
