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.

No Deer - Just Squirrels and Hunters

Saw two hunters (no deer) and shot this hunter going to his stand rather late.

Only saw 2 squirrels (no deer) and managed to shoot one with my camera as the sun was going down.

You can see how much he opened it up for me.

This past weekend I went hunting both Saturday and Sunday afternoon. As you can see from this picture their are a lot of limbs in the way. So the first picture is a before picture and the next one is after it was cleared by my step-son, Greg, a few weeks later. He did a fantastic job and also put my tin roof on top of my stand. Now I want get wet if it rains. I do have an camo tree half-umbrella but I prefer my roof. Now - if I can get a deer to walk in front of me!

Keep chanting C'Mere Deer. ;) I think that is what I will try.

I am glad you got a roof on your deerstand. That will certainly help on rainy days.
