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.

Covering Turkey Tracks

Conservation officers say a Louisiana man killed a turkey out of season in Louisiana and attempted to cover his tracks with Mississippi's turkey season.
According to the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, Joshua Seal, 24, of Angie, La., was cited on March 23 for alleged turkey hunting violations in Washington Parish. LDWF said the citation came after a joint investigation involving Louisiana officers and the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks.
MDWFP agents notified LDWF that Seal was suspected of illegal hunting in Mississippi and Louisiana. LDWF agents conducted an investigation and according to their report, found that Seal had killed a turkey on March 19 on private land near Angie where he did not have permission to hunt. Louisiana's turkey season did not open until March 26.
LDWF's report indicated that Seal then took the bird into Mississippi, where turkey season was open, in an effort to make it appear the bird was legally harvested. He was discovered by MDWFP officers.
Seal was charged with criminal trespassing, taking a turkey during a closed season and failing to comply with turkey tagging regulations. Killing a turkey out of season carries a $900 - $950 fine and up to 120 days in jail. Criminal trespassing carries a $100 - $500 fine and up to 30 days in jail. Seal may also face civil restitution of $1,539 for the replacement value of the illegally taken turkey.
