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.

"Hoo...Rah...Kimmy!"


The ex-cheerleader, (age 19), in the picture below was watching a road that led to a NATO military base when she observed a man digging by the road. She acquired the target, and she shot him. Turned out, he was a bomb maker for the Taliban and he was burying an “IED” that was to be detonated when a U.S. patrol walked by 30 minutes later. It would have certainly killed and wounded several soldiers.

The interesting fact of this story is the shot was measured at….725 yards, or a distance over the length of seven (7) football fields. She shot him as he was bent over burying the bomb. The shot struck him in the butt throwing him into the bomb which detonated. He was blown to pieces.
The Marine Corps made a motivational poster of her. Her name is “Kimmy.”

Please...say a prayer for all our brave, young, and courageous men and women who are holding “steadfast,” that line which keeps us safe and keeps us FREE! ~Marian ~

The last line of that post gave me chill bumps, I swear. That is a great post and we all need to be thankful for our brave women and men that protect our freedom. I can't even put into words how much I appreciate their service to this great country. God bless them all. Kimmy is a true hero!

An outstanding young woman. She can take my back any time.

I'm wishing for a permanent R&R for all of our service members that are in harms way today.
