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.

The Fastest Bird



Hop on the back of a Peregrine Falcon for a really fast flight.  Also, a Goshawk flying through the woods.  Pretty cool!

Thanks for posting this. Always great to see what the falcon sees.

I've watched them follow airboats around Lake Okeechobee and knock down startled coots. They stay real high up, then dive bomb the coots and send them spiraling across the water...it's vicious, but kinda cool!

You are welcome Glenn - you take beautiful pictures of birds..love your site.

I bet that was neat to watch them from airboats...never seen one before Ian.
