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 Headed to Christmas Place


Ethan, my grandson, Bob and I are invited up to Rex's famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club for the 4th Annual Youth Hunt. Ethan is so excited about getting to go hunting and hopefully get his very first deer. He will be using my .270 to hunt with. We have to wait until he gets out of school this afternoon at Raymond High and then head on up to the
deer camp. We are all looking forward to seeing everyone at the camp and wish all the young hunters a successful hunt this weekend in our great wild outdoors!

Some of my fondest memories are of the youth hunts my son and I used to attend. When he was too young to really hunt, we would wind up wrestling in the leaves behind the camo-netting. Once three does walked up to see what was going on!

You can't beat a .270...used one my entire hunting career, however, I started my son out with 12 gauge slugs!
