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.

What A Waste

I had a friend of mine from CamoSpace, SwietsRick, to send me this picture the other day by email. I asked him what was the story behind this really nice buck. He said that actually a guy found it in his cornfield while bird hunting. Apparently, someone had shot it...but was not a good shot and died days later. What a waste!

Bad shots do happen from time to time but it still is a shame to find something like this. I can only imagine how the hunter felt after losing that deer.
I have lost deer in the past and it is a awful feeling.

Makes my heart skip a beat when I see the picture of that buck. It is sad someone didn't get to use the meat.
