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.

A Bacon Bust

Tylertown, MS - Four people facing criminal charges are accused of trapping and illegally selling wild hogs in Louisiana and Mississippi.

Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks Major Lane Ball says his department cited the four on March 29, raiding a pen in southern Walthall County.

Christopher and Mandy Miley of Franklinton, Louisiana, are charged will illegally importing, transporting and selling wild hogs, and trapping without a license.

Sierra Miley of Tylertown and Bethanie Toothman of Sulphur, Louisiana, are charged with illegally selling hogs.  The four are due April 27 in Walthall County Justice Court.

Although wild hogs are a nuisance, Ball says some people buy them to train hunting dogs.  He says the four are trapping hogs and selling them to people in Louisiana and Mississippi, charging as little as $50.00 apiece.
