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 Morning Hunt

Ethan and I - nothing like taking a child or grandchild hunting!

Erin, Rex and Spencer coming out from their stands. A great picture of a father with his children hunting in our great wild outdoors!

Ethan likes Rex's 4-wheeler the best and put this picture on his Facebook profile yesterday evening.

Ethan on our Honda 4-wheeler.

Took this picture at the Box Stand before we walked back to our 4-wheeler.


Looking to the right of the stand.

Ethan patiently waiting for a deer to walk out. He is a good hunter. I will be taking him to my camp this season also and hopefully he will get one there. His day will come!
We got up before daybreak, ate breakfast and followed Rex with his son, Spencer and daughter, Erin to the other side of the Beaver Dam. After we arrived we walked to The Box Stand and Rex and his children headed to their stands. We climbed up and got situated and waited and waited, but unfortunately, no deer came out. It was a beautiful morning and took some pictures as seen above of opening day of Youth Hunt. This is the very stand that I got on this past hunting season and missed two does...a day I will never ever forget and nobody lets me forget it either!

I bet every one had a good time getting out in the woods and hunting and visiting together. Hang in there Ethan, you will get a deer, just keep going hunting every chance you get.
