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.

Gumbo Recipe - The River Rat Way

Here is the complete recipe for the gumbo that I posted here on March 3rd. I have had numerous requests for it and the cook Sherry Couey Grant was very excited for me to share it with everyone.

Wild hog, deer, sausage and duck is in this gumbo that you see. Chicken can be added or other meat that you like.  Boil the meat and use the broth from that and add the homemade roux or buy the gumbo mix roux. Sherry has used both and you can't tell the difference. Add a can of Rotel and jar/can of whole tomatoes. Add the kernel corn and as much okra as you like. The more the better and you let it cook for at least a hour. The longer the better!!  You can also add Creole seasoning for the Cajun heat and serve over rice and enjoy!
