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.

No Luck Deer Hunting

The field in front of me that I walked across to get to my stand.
A new deer stand near the Big Black River (A3)

When I got to the deer camp there were only four hunters and one was getting ready to pull out. No one had harvested a deer that morning. I decided to go to the stand that I was going to put Kathy on Friday and check it out. I liked it and was easy to get into. No deer walked out and it was a 15 minute walk to and from the stand. When I got back to the camp they were loading up the 4-wheelers and the camp president, Allen, said he only saw a deer towards dark and could not make it out. No one else saw anything. It was a very warm day yesterday and the deer were not moving at all. The weather today has fallen into the low 50's and by Thursday and Friday into the upper 20's for the low. Primitive weapons will start December 2-15 and then back to guns. I look forward to getting back into the woods after primitive season is over with. I need to check into getting a .40-70 or a .444 Marlin to hunt with so I will have more time in be in our great wild outdoors.
