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.

Shelby, A Lady Hunter

This is Shelby Holland, a lady hunter, who came to my blog and left a comment the other day on Making Herself At Home post.  She's 23 years old and a newly wed.  She has a blog called, The Hollands, and has been posting for two years.  Shelby and her new husband live in Oregon and she works as a Patient Access Specialist.  I look forward to all her hunting adventures and hope to post them on my blog. I also want to encourage her to join our Outdoor Bloggers Summit to get support and meet other blogging hunters in our great wild outdoors.  Besides deer she loves hunting elk, duck, go fishing, hiking and spending time with her family and three adorable dogs.  I look forward to getting to know her and wish her GOODHUNTING for next hunting season.

PS:  From Shelby:  I grew up in a family where my father hunted. I wasn't active in it at all, and when my I met my husband all of that changed. He grew up hunting, everything that moved. :) I had never shot a gun up until 5 years ago, and he started me out with a .22 rifle. It was fun to go shooting and to actually hit the thing I aimed at. I have yet to kill a buck, but I have taken my fair share of ducks, grouse, and a skunk {my first kill}.
