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.

Bret's First Turkey!

I have written about Bret before and at 12 years old he is quite the hunter. His grandmother, Theresa, "T", is a good friend on mine on MySpace and lives in north Mississippi. She was telling me that he and his Dad (Franz) got up early on St. Patrick's Day and went to a good hunting spot in the woods where we had heard a few gobblers. They set up and Bret watched as his Dad called for the turkey and finally in the distance they heard one call back. It took some time but Franz got the Jake to come in closer where Bret was. Franz said, "there he is Bret take your shot." What seemed to be a hour Bret still eyeing the turkey, hand on trigger and he just kept waiting and waiting. Franz said he thought he was never going to shoot. Finally he shot! Franz said Bret turned and looked at him and said, "Dad I had it under control, you see me roll that sucker"! Bret was so excited that he called everyone to tell them that he finally killed his first Jake. Then off he went to sporting goods place to buy some turkey calls. T said that she is very proud of her grandson and he his harvested many a deer, but ducks is his passion (see below), and now turkey. He is going again Friday, Saturday and Sunday. T wishes everyone Happy Hunting during turkey season. My congrats to Bret on his first turkey in the great wild outdoors!

How embarrasing to be envious of a twelve year old
