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.
Brad Beyer said this cam picture was taken at Port Gibson, MS! He has pictures with a male laying in a trough feeder for two days picking the corn out of the Record Rack Feed he puts out for the deer. "They can be a nuisance by tearing up feeders but has at least 50 bear pictures and see tracks and scat all the time but never seen one eye to eye, Beyer said. I don't mind at all them being in the woods with me and we have at least 6 and I'm sure if she has cubs there are more. They avoid people and by the time they start having problems we will have tags to hunt them...it's just that simple!"
A Louisiana hunter said that bears are worse than hogs and run deer out, messes up the feeders, eat the feed and of course they can't be hunted.
I believe we have bears in every county in our great state of Mississippi!
