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.

Deer Drops In For Dinner

Saw this article in our paper last night and if you missed it...a deer shows up at a New York eatery.  The deer was not on the menu but customers at a western New York restaurant got an up-close look at some venison on the hoof. 

Management and customers said a deer crashed through a window at an Applebee's in Batavia just after 7 p.m. Sunday.

Customer Bruce Beck, who was visiting from Wisconsin, says the deer nearly slid into the booth next to his before veering away and running thought the restaurant.

Witnesses say people were able to herd the deer out the front door.  No one was hurt.

Heeeey Marian-
Just wanted to stop by & tell you that I am bummmmmmed out! I didn't draw my two major hunts this year, and I thought I had a pretty solid shot at drawing them, oh well. I guess next year..hopefully. :) I am not sure if I will do a general hunt this year. It is so hard to even see any bucks, let alone any does. So we'll see how it goes, I might just rock out for hunting season, and go visit camp with the people that did draw their tags. ;)

So sorry to hear the bad news Shelby. Hopefully, next year you will have better luck. If you go to the camp and visit...at least you are in the woods and you can take pictures of their harvest and post them on your blog. :)
