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.

Azaleas Blooming




Our azaleas are blooming now but not in full bloom. I'm surprised that they look this good after some hard rain and winds for three straight days. Still a lot of buds on the brush and should be in full bloom by the end of the week. Charming, Just Charming!

Beautiful flowers! They look like the Formosa variety..I have a couple of hedges of Formosas that looked a lot like these. Of course when the Florida sun hit them they dropped off. My old fashioned azaleas are still blooming some but the hard rain and wind got most of them last night.

But I do have some red roses in bloom and some others that are budding out. Spring is here!

Yes, Spring has sprung here in the deep South. Tell Penny hello for me and hope to see you all this summer. Thanks for coming by GuyK. :)

Beautiful photos/flowers Marian!
We used to live in Tyler TX and they are known for their azaleas in the spring time.

I do miss the azaleas and wisteria in bloom. We've still got snow here!
