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.

Getting Ready For Deer Season 2018-2019

Tomorrow is opening day for the 2018-2019 MS deer season for gun.  I was able to go to a deer camp today to zero in my rifle with my hunting friend, Charley Ring.   His family has a camp off of Ring Road south of town.  We both shoot a .270 and it was a perfect day to be in the woods.  So happy to get my rifle sited in and have no excuses in missing a deer this season.

Family Ring Deer Camp.

The skinning rack.

Charley shooting my gun first at 50 and then 100 yards.

Me shooting at 50 and 100 yards.

At 50 yards, Charley's shot to the left and my shot to the right.  Dead deer!

At 100 yards Charley's to the left 1st try and 3rd try after flenching twice.  Dead deer!

Took this picture from Charley's truck of a deer stand right next to his family's property.  A really nice stand.

A beautiful day to be in the woods and have hunted this field and saw a fawn and doe.

Charley getting ready to clean out his stand.  This is the stand I hunted a few years ago and saw the two deer but when I put my rifle up to shoot the sun glanced off my barrel and Mama doe was looking right at me and took off.  

 Charley got the wasps nest and cobwebs out of the deer stand and swept it out to hunt out of it tomorrow.  GOODHUNTING to all the hunters in our great wild outdoors!  Wish me LUCK this season!

Mama Lucille At 85 Years Old Got Her A Buck!


Mark Drury of Drury Outdoors TV show took his Mama Lucille hunting with cameraman Wade in the Missouri hardwoods at the young age of 85 years. 



He is so proud of her shooting her biggest deer at 40 yards with a .223.  She said it was a fun time and very educational for four days   


He thanked his Mom for spending her weekend with them and will forever cherish this moment in time.  

Mark said we know that Pops is looking down on us every day. 

Got him on Cam!

My congratulations to Lucille on a fine buck and at the age of 85 years.  I hope I will still be hunting in our great wild and wonderful outdoors at 85!  Way to go, Lucille!

Little Graham's First Pig

Graham's Dad, Brandon from Pierre Part, Louisiana said that his son hasn't missed an animal yet and he thinks he's the next American sniper.  

He shot this pig at 130 yards with a red dot with no magnification and shot it right at first light probably around 6ish somewhere in Mississippi.  They did not get down until around 9:00 so it was already starting to get stiff and why it was not falling over.  Dad had to beak a stick and shove it in the dirt and stuck it in the pig's ear because he couldn't hold it up.  We know this little piggy did not go wee wee wee all the way home!  

My congratulation to little Graham with a "winning smile" in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors!  :)

Eli's First Deer

Eli got his very first deer Saturday while hunting with his Dad and Mom of Lafayette Springs, Mississippi.  His Mom stated that he has been hooked on hunting and been a bunch of times but never shot.  Now that she has a .243 he can shoot it.  His doe weighed 100 lbs. 

Looks like the kids are bringing home the meat in our great wild Mississippi outdoors!

My Congratulations to Eli on his very first deer.  His smile says it all!  Way to go, Eli!

Administrator Donald Robertson could not resist in making up this cute saying for Eli's deer.

What Joy!

My two youngest Granddaughters little Kate and Emma playing in the leaves at their home in Virginia. 

I wished I lived closer to see them every day but at least I can enjoy the pictures that my daughter, Suzi sends me.  They bring me so much joy when they come to Mississippi to visit me or when I talk to them on the phone.  It looks like they are having a blast playing in the leaves in their front yard.  Gran Gran loves both of you so much!  xoxo
