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.

On The Game Warden's Stand

Looking out my window to the right.

A picture of the cold droplets of rain on the branch outside of Bob's window.

We did not know that the weather was going to be so cold and have a blanket of snow on the ground by the next day. I forgot my hat at the camp and Bob was kind enough to let me use his for awhile to warm up.

Those are some nice pictures and I love to see deer whether I'm hunting them or not. It is hard to believe that turkey season opens in a month when I look out the window at a foot and a half of snow.

Thanks for sharing Marian.

You are welcome Rick and Adam...it is a great place to hunt and love to take pictures from a stand. One day when you can't hunt any more you will have your pictures and fond memories. :)
