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.

My friend in Texas sent me photos of this pitbull that was in his backyard in southern California, minding his own business.....until a porcupine invaded his territory. The brave, but stupid Pitbull, immediately challenged the porcupine! Bad decision...the porcupine won this short contest.

A vet sedated the dog, and then removed a total of 1,347 quills. The dog survived, and hopefully learned a valuable lesson. Now, tell me you had a bad day!!

Lord have mercy on that poor dog! I once dequilled a couple of dogs in Central America, but they had enough sense to quit after a dozen quills in their snouts.

Poor creature... I'm glad he made it.

Years ago I was tring to train aGerman SHort hair pup..a i year old...he was doing good and I was proud of him and myself until he came to a point and I told him to flush and he flushed a porky...took the vet a couple of hours to clean him up...buthe learned and never flushed another one

It honestly hurts me just to look at those pictures. I can't even begin to imagine how the dog felt.

It is good that the dog is improving. I bet given the same situation in the future he will run the other way.

I agree with Simply Outdoors it hurts to look at the dog.
