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.

With Stick In Hand

Bob coming to meet me after a morning hunt from a ground box stand.

My walking stick that was given to me by, Paul, who calls it the "Perfect Walking Stick" which he hand carved and finished himself.  Paul lives here in Vicksburg.   He burned my full name into the stick and is registered with a number.  

Bob with his stick that was purchased at Corner Drug Store downtown Vicksburg but was hand made by Mountainside Crafts in Tennessee.

I think walking sticks are great tools. Sure wish I would have had one last winter to poke around in some unstable snow before I stepped into it. ;)

Marian, you are just amazing. It's nice to see that you enjoy hiking in the woods at your age; and I can see that you're all geared up for that trip. Your walking stick is hand-made, huh? That's really clever. Good luck with your hiking trips!

Thanks Tristian! My stick really helps my footing walking to my deer stand. My sick is handmade from a gentleman that lives here in Vicksburg and he gave it to me. My husband's stick was bought at Corner Drug Store downtown Vicksburg and was made in Tennessee. We have really enjoyed using them during hunting season. Thanks to you and CDGardens for commenting.
