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.

Kathy and I Went Hunting

Hey Rex, this one's for you - I could not help it - had to stop and take a picture of a cow!
I'm cow blogging again! Took several so will save them for tomorrow.


On our way home we ran into a flock of black birds flying across the road. We stopped to take some pictures. The fields to the left and right was full of birds.

Kathy took a picture of me for our memories!

Kathy telling me what she saw. A doe and yearling feeding and waited for the big buck to come from behind, but never showed up! This was all she saw and that was around 8:00 this morning. At least we both saw deer moving with the warm weather we are having.

At 8:00 (at the end of the road) I had a doe to step out and had her in my scope and saw another deer behind her and waited. It was a scraggly 4-point buck! The big one never walked out! Good to see deer moving this morning with a cold front headed our way this afternoon.

My stand (F6) that I was on this morning.

Around 7:20 I had a 4 point buck come from the right and cross the road and went back into the woods to the left. A nice buck! I had my back to him and when I turned around he was headed east.

This morning my daughter Kathy and I took off about 5:15 and went hunting at Jasper Bottom Hunting Club in Claiborne County. We were the only ones at the deer camp. I took her to F4 and I went to F6. Years ago this was a wide opened soybean field and within the last 15 years, trees have been planted. It has grown up so thick now. At one time you could see the stands at each corner of the opened field.

What a good picture of you Marian. It is also great to see a mother and a daughter going hunting. Very cool.

Thanks for the kind words Kristine. Kathy is my only daughter who has an interest in hunting and she is a very good one! She only has two days off a week and we have made plans to go back tomorrow evening and try again. She wants to switch stands and hopefully she will harvest a deer. :)
