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.

Houston...we have hogs!

We had a great afternoon in the woods hog hunting and deer hunting at Rex's famous Christmas Place Hunting Club in the MS Delta. Rex took Bob over to the North Cornfield Stand to hog hunt and afterwards we headed to the Crossover Stand to hog and deer hunt. Bob said that his hog came running out around 4:45 and he shot it at 150 yards. You go Bob! Rex and I saw does and fawns in front and behind us but no hog or monster "Thunderhoof" buck walked out. It was a real treat to hunt together and experience all the animals in their own habitat. As we were coming out on the 4-wheeler we saw two hunters, Burney and Steward, walking towards the main road. Burney commented that he had shot at two hogs, but could only find one of them. Steward had seem a bunch of deer but was to far away to make a good shot. When everyone got back to the camp we all enjoyed telling our stories and what was seen. After dinner, Rex helped Bob butcher his hog as I gather up our hunting gear for our trip back home...as always...leaving with more fond memories of another great hunt with our special friends in the Mississippi Delta. Again, my congrats to Bob and Burney on their hog harvest in our great wild outdoors!
