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.

The Blog Frog Award

blog_frog
Yesterday, I received an email from, Tracy Myers, informing me that my blog had been featured on Guide to Online School's list of the best hunting blogs found. They hand-picked a list of their favorites and outlined the unique reasons why.  I was picked as No. 1 out of 50 hunting blogs!  What an honor and I will proudly display my Blog Frog Award badge on my site!  Below is what they had to say about me.  


Marian Hunting Stories:  Who ever said that hunting was only for the young? The young at heart often boast additional wisdom and bravado as weapons in their arsenal, as is exampled by this 70-year-young blogger. Marian and her three generations of family have been hunting for nearly three decades, and this site commemorates their most successful ventures. Marian's site serves as a great example of a blog that melds the personal with a focus on the great hunt.
  • Why We Love It: A 70something matriarch leads her family and leads the way to the game on this charismatic site.
  • Favorite Post: Vicksburg Youth

Again, I'm deeply grateful for this award and had it not been for my mentor, Rex Howell of Deer Camp Blog, encouraging me to continue my blogging over 4-1/2 years ago, I would not be here today.  I want to thank my husband, Bob, who took the time to teach me the art of hunting in my mid-forties while we were dating, to shoot a handgun, rifle, muzzle loader, shotgun and a bow.  I also want to congratulate the other hunting bloggers nominated to the Top 50, because most of them have travel with me on a journey as hunters in our great wild outdoors!.
