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.

Trivia Quiz Show Contestant!

Strategic solutions in television, radio, print, online, grassroots and new media
On March 17, I received and email from Teena Hubbard Of Scott Linden Outdoors and she said....

Saw you over at…well, actually, saw your link all over the place! Maybe it was the Hog Blog, maybe Albert Rasch's place. :)

Either way, am wondering if perhaps you'd be willing to be a contestant on my outdoor trivia quiz. Scott Linden Outdoors is a nationally syndicated radio show (you may have known us as Field & Stream Radio) and every week we have an easy Outdoor quiz. Albert's done it, NorCal Cazadora's done it… heck, lots of people have given it a shot!!! :)

I think we're giving away a $25 Cabela's gift certificate, if that tempts you. And there are some small prizes win or lose.

Let me know your thoughts. This takes about 5-10 minutes. We normally tape on Wednesday mornings, pacific time.

So about a week or so later, Scott contacted me by e-mail to set it all up. This past Wednesday around 9:00 got a call from Scott to see if we were still on go and told him yes. At noon Tim called me and I began talking with Scott and he had 3 questions for me. He asked me what I did outdoors and told him I was a deer hunter. My first question...can't remember what it was now...I got wrong and the answer was "whitetail deer". Rats!! The next two questions I got right...don't know how...maybe a wild guess? Anyway, I really had a lot of fun hanging out with Scott and enjoying the fun. Yesterday afternoon when I opened my front door, I saw a box at my doorstep and it was from Scott Linden Outdoors of Oregon. Within 3 days I had my prizes! I took it into the dinning room and opened it up and pulled out an all-color bass fishing guide book by Bill Herzog, a Mossy Oak hat with Delta Waterfowl emblem of ducks with http://www.deltawaterfowl.org/ on the back, a mini worktool by Bushcraft, a CD called, Fishing Music (a collection of acoustic folk, blues & swing) and a beautiful wooden box with a fish engraved and inside..note papers with a fish printed on them. I know I will enjoyed all my gifts and I really appreciate Scott Linden and his staff for giving me the opportunity to be on their radio quiz show. Charming, Just Charming!
