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.

Congrats Godchild!

John Kirk Ring (my Godchild) killed this big buck in south Warren County at 5:15 pm at the edge of a food plot. He found the right side of a shed that is very similar to this buck in March of 2005 while scouting for turkeys. The shed was found around 350 yards from where Kirk killed the buck. On December 23rd, he was climbing a tree when the deer came out trailing a doe and his gun was on the ground. He had to watch him trot by. The day that Kirk killed the buck, he hunted from sun up to sun down, and the buck finally walked out just before dark. It was 74 degrees that day with 20 mph winds.
9 point with an inside Spread: 19 1/2"
Beams: 23"
Weight: between 200 and 215 lb.
Kirk will be getting married this weekend to Melissa Kilpatrick in Biloxi, MS, at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church. Looking forward to being there for the wedding. His mother and I are the bestest of friends. May you and Melissa have a wonderful life together John Kirk!
