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.

Some Hunting Tidbits

Here are a few pictures that a friend of mine in Arkansas, Elaine, sent me recently.  The first one is of a coyote.  Well, she said, he seemed to have a penchant for new born foals, I suppose, because this one did not want to take no for an answer. It was shot in the gut. I was using a .243 at the time. This just happened to be during hunting season, so I was ready for whatever came along.

Second one...The deer in velvet, was on side of road in Flora, MS, and strangely enough, close to where a huge 230 lb., 8-point buck killed my truck!  She kept the antlers but gave the deer away.   Read about her story here posted on October 18, 2010. 


Third one...This three toed hoof was sent to her by a friend.  Very unusual!
