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.

A Teenager Did This!


There is a huge rock near a gravel pit on HWY 25 in rural Iowa. For generations, kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times. A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job, and since then it has been left completely undisturbed. It's quite an impressive sight. Be sure to scroll down and check out the multiple photos (all angles) of the rock. It looks like the flag was draped over the rock, but it's not. It's actually painted on the rock too.





Here's the artist: Ray 'Bubba' Sorensen.

Wow, that is amaaaazing! Ray doesn't look like a teenager or thinks or paints like one. I wonder how long it took him to do this. Incredible!

He sounds like a really great young man. I love his painting. http://www.thefreedomrock.com/

It's about time that a teenage kid used his powers for good:) That is one great rock, and I hope it never changes.
