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.

Arrowhead and Pond Stands

The Arrowhead Stand is one of my favorite stands to hunt off of at the famous Christmas Place.  I have seen a lot of deer from this one tripod stand that sits in the middle of a huge field...one day I saw 18 in all.  This is the same stand I took pictures of a bobcat and a yearling suckling.  Last Saturday afternoon around 4:50, I did hear a hog squeal and thought any minute it would come up the hill from below, charging across the field, but nothing.  Later a possum came by to visit me and that was it.  Sunday morning Rex took me to the Pond Stand which is not far from the camp house.  On the way we passed by two dogs laying in the grass as we drove by them.  On the stand I saw two Mallard ducks (male and female) fly in and enjoyed watching them through my binoculars.  Later the two dogs that I had seen earlier walked across from the pond and faded into the woods.  I'm surprised that I did not see a hog since they love to wallow in the mud around the duck pond.   Regardless, it was a good hunt just to be in nature and enjoy the great outdoors!
