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.

Youngsters On The Hunt

Kaya Crist, age 11, killed her first deer, an eight-point buck, in Sharkey County on a trip with her grandfather.  She used a .242 from 100 yards out.  The spread was 17 inches and the buck weighed 250 pounds.  Crist is the daughter of Connie and Mike Crist.

Brandon Thompson, age 10, killed three snow geese with a 20-gauge shotgun on a recent goose hunt outside Waldenburg, Ark.  He is the son of Charles Thompson of Vicksburg.  Congrats to Brandon and Kayla on their successful hunts in our great extreme outdoors!

Really you are very brave!!! I am amazed on reading the story. I started hunting deer when I was 18 years old and although we had lots of fun being together as a family during those hunts, the hunting itself was miserable. I don't remember a time when I wasn't either soaked to the waist from wading through flooded swamps. South carolina hunting
