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.

Don't You Just Love Nature?








Scott Nelson and his sons were fishing in Idaho one day when this small whitetail fawn approached them on the South Fork of the Snake River.  It must have spent the summer bumming from campers or maybe one of the home owners in the lower canyon was feeding it so it lost its fear of humans. This is without question the Catch of the Year!  Charming, Just Charming!

Marian, you gotta' love it! I live about (15) miles from the South Fork of the Snake River. You never know what wildlife you might encounter as you share the river with them.
