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.

Christmas With Family

Bob with son, Greg, on Christmas Day.

Another nice deer - Greg is an avid deer hunter and harvested this big 8-point buck (see picture) taken south of town in December 2000. He was the guest of a hunting buddy/friend and used his in line muzzle loader. The deer weighed 255 lbs. and the antlers had an inside spread of 25 inches. His buck scored 131 on the Boone and Crockett.

My step-son, Greg, made this "table" mount for his deer out of peke cypress. This is a side view and a very different and unusual way in presenting a deer.

Looks like a lovely holiday celebration.

That display for the deer skeleton and antlers is interesting. ;)

They call that a European mount showing only the skull bones and horns. Usually it's on a wood mount on the wall but I have never seen a table one that Greg had made. It's different...thanks for coming by cdegardens. :)
