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.

Hunting This Weekend!

I was invited by my mentor/blogging friend, Rex Howell, to spend the weekend to hunt at their famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on the edge of the Delta.  The picture above was taken while hog hunting 7 or 8 years ago and you can barely see a deer (tripod) stand that I have hunted from.  Looking forward to seeing my hunting buddies again and being in the great wild outdoors of Mississippi!

Featured By The Mississippi Club

I was interviewed back in November by my Facebook friend, Rosalin Moss, a freelance writer/photographer for The Mississippi Club which is dedicated to raising awareness about the beautiful people, places and events in Mississippi, and encouraging tourism in Mississippi. 

On January 15, 2017 she posted the story about me as a lady hunter.  I want to share with you today  how it all began for me as a hunter.  I hope to inspire and encourage other women to take up the sport of hunting in our great wild and wonderful outdoors!

Bobby was born in California and served on the police force there for twenty years and had three children.  May He Rest In Peace!

We went across Cemetery Road to another part of the Natchez National Cemetery to take more pictures.

You can see the Mississippi River from here.











Beautiful shaped tree with moss!

On our way out buzzards were trying to eat a road kill on Cemetery Road and I took this picture of them waiting in a tree.

Road Trip To Natchez National Cemetery (1)


Last Saturday my friend, Johnette and I took a road trip to Natchez, MS.  The trip was to visit her husbands grave who died two years ago and was buried in the Natchez National Cemetery.  On our way down 61 South we past by some strange looking buildings like the one above.  Not sure what it is but looks like a silo. 

Close-up view with a doorway! 

Above is the Old Country Store in Lorman, MS.  I have been in this store several times going to Natchez through the years. 

It's a country store/restaurant now serving "soul food" with a lunch buffet featuring heavenly fried chicken!

We took a two mile side trip down Red Lick Road to Rosswood Cotton Plantation Mansion which is a Mississippi Landmark circulated 1857 and checking it out one day.

Tour hours!

Rosswood was shelled during the Civil War, used as a hospital for both sides, and now had been restored and furnished.  You can view real plantation diaries and documents, tour the mansion and slave quarters and sleep in history.  We are looking forward to touring it.   To be continued...

First Time Hunter Hooked!

Jason Nicholas' son got his very first deer yester-day morning.  He spotted the deer and shot him like a seasoned pro, he said.  The best part was that after he shot, he got a bad case of the Elvis Presley legs and couldn't even stand up.  How I know that feeling!  He is now hooked for life and another hunter is born.  Check out that smile on his face and his shot placement!  Priceless!  Congratulations to this young hunter in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors.

First 8-Point! Buck Near Home!

This young 10 year old got his very first deer this morning near Vicksburg, MS (my hometown).  He is the son of Charles Turner King and said, Thank you Lord!  A very nice 8 point buck for a first deer I would say!
My congrats to this little man in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!  Way to go!

A Three Legged 9 Point Buck!

Michael "Mike" Dorsett, a Tour Guide at the Vicksburg National Military Park in Vicksburg, MS, killed a 3 legged 9 point buck today in Jefferson County.  It's either a birth defect or got shot off.  I'm surprised he reached adulthood with all the coyotes out there.  This one buck survived and thrived through it all until today.  My congrats to Mike on his 3 legged buck that you don't see everyday in our great Mississippi outdoors!

A Windy Day Buck!


Mandi Fowler of Brandon, MS, killed this nice buck near Indianola, yesterday.  Not a bad day considering it was super windy and 70 degrees she said.  This was not her first buck.  Someone joked about her wearing lipstick but she said she is never without it.  Lipstick or not she did very well for a windy day and can relate.  I also shot at a nice 8 point on a very windy day and they do walk!  Congratulations to Mandi on a job well done in our great wild Mississippi outdoors!
