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.

Coming Out Party For Black Bears in MS

June has been like a coming out party for black bears in Central Mississippi and being caught on camera.

A photo was shared over the weekend of a bear that was in a tree in the resident's front yard in Satartia, MS.  Bears have also been spotted in Clinton on Pinehaven Road and along Highway 18 near Pentecostal Drive.  Sightings have also been seen in Yazoo County.  Motorist in the area should proceed with caution.

Anyone who sees a bear should call Animal Control at 769-257-1899.  

Wildlife biologist said the bear population is growing and young bears are being pushed out of their homes. "These little young guys are just wandering everywhere," said Richard Rummel, of the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks.  "They will hit a creek bottom, a river bottom, any wooded area.  

They are kind of looking for their own home range."   Black bears can cover a lot of ground.  Tank, a black bear at the Jackson Zoo, was released in north Mississippi and then captured again a year later in Mobile County, Alabama.
