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.

Baby...It's Cold Outside


I took this pretty picture of a frozen creek bed on the Natchez Trace coming home yesterday afternoon from our truck. It was a winter wonderland while visiting our friends but was so bitterly cold. We really had a great time but saw no deer while on our stands. We were located about 20 minutes from Tupelo, MS, the birthplace of Elvis Presley. We got about an inch of snow and was able to deer hunt for the first time in the snow. Will be posting some pictures tomorrow of my hunt. The temps remained mostly in the twenties and teens!
PS: Many thanks Rex for posting for me while on my hunting trip...What do I really want? How about a deer, a hog and a good hunt with great friends! Bob and I are looking forward to seeing y'all at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club this coming weekend.

That is a pretty picture of ice on the frozen creek bed.

Hope it warms up outside for your trip to Christmas Place.

We will all be glad when warmer weather returns. ;)

I am so glad you got to hunt in the snow! It's kind of fun tracking them this way! Hope it warms up for you soon Marian, it is -2 degrees here and the Connecticut River is frozen solid! Jack
