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.

820-Pound Hog Killed In Front Yard In AL

Wade Seago, a deer hunter, and taxidermist in Samson, AL, said he knew something was up outside his house on July 11 when his family's dog started barking and wouldn't stop.  

His daughter began screaming as he got up to check on his dog, Cruiser.

He looked out the back window and saw nothing, so he ran to the front of the house and couldn't believe what he was seeing.

Cruiser was barking at a massive wild hog, which was about five yards from the family's front porch.

Wade said it was not a good situation and went and grabbed his .38-caliber revolver and went back onto the front porch.

It took three shots to take the hog down before it hit the ground.  

The next day, he took the hog to a nearby peanut company to use its scales to weigh the wild beast.

He plans to display the hog's stuffed head and shoulders at his taxidermy shop.  Rest of meat was thrown away because of the heat and humidity.

He had no regrets in killing the hog and would do it again, which had tusk-like teeth that were 6 inches long. Feral hogs cause millions of dollars in damage annually, and hunters on private land can kill as many of them as they want under the AL and MS law.
