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.

Motherhood in The Animal World








This baby moose was born in the middle of downtown Naubinway, Michigan. A lady said that in her 33 years in Michigan 's Upper Peninsula, she had never seen a new-born baby moose. She said this one was not even a half-a-mile from her home. The mother picked a small quiet neighbor and had her baby in the front yard just off of US 2, at 5:30 a. m. She and her husband Allen were out bike riding when they came upon the pair. The lady across the street from this house told them that she saw it being born. She said they saw them at 5:30 p.m. The little one was only 12 hours old and stated what an awesome place they live in to see such a site!

Marian,
Aren't those photos great! My Mom emailed them to me awhile ago. We have moose here in the Eastern UP too but I've never been lucky enough to see one.
All the best,
