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.

Ethan's Evening Hunt

Ethan, Spencer, Matt and Nick going hog hunting for a couple of hours before the evening hunt.

Herschel showing me his new Duck Pond Stand that we will hunt from that afternoon.

Ethan getting set up for the hunt.

Deer and hogs walk the edge of this duck pond bank.

A nice field for the deer to come out and browse.

After we came back from our morning hunt we were trying to decide where to put Ethan for his evening hunt. Herschel "The Chief" Howell, Rex's Dad, suggested that I take him to his Duck Pond Stand because he has seen deer and hogs there. He drove me over to the site by way of the main road and it looked like a great spot with easy access. Their are two stands at the pond and this one was just built recently for him. We would have pretty of room to move around and when it came time we took off and got to the stand and hunted. While there we had mallard ducks to land in the pond in front of us, but were spooked within seconds and took off. Nothing walked out and was decided after we got back to camp that, 'Lucky' Paul (Rex's brother), would take Ethan with him the next morning to hunt again in the great outdoors!

It must be a really great feeling to take a grandchild into the woods and teach them about nature. My best of luck to him on the hunt.
