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.

Baby Fawn Rescued

This was sent to me by my friend Steve and was also posted on YouTube by eddiebett.

He said that on the  morning of May 18, 2011, my wife noticed a deer in a yard that appeared to be frantically looking for something in the rocks that form a wall on the property line in Brush Prairie, WA

When they first went out with the neighbors, they didn't see anything but the doe wouldn't leave the yard.  We went back into our house and watched - after a few minutes the deer came back.  We went out to the area the deer was concentrating on and could hear a baby fawn crying in the rocks. He had apparently fallen in or crawled in through one of the gaps and was now trapped.  The large boulders were too heavy to move and we didn't want to have the rocks cave in on the baby deer.

They finally called the Clark County Fire District 3.  The B-Shift team came out and they were able to move the larger rocks out of the way with the Jaws of Life enough to be able to reach in and pull the baby fawn out and reunited it with its mama.  The fawn most likely was probably stuck in there most of the night and quickly went on to nurse off it's mama.

One of the neighbors took some video clips of the fire department's rescue.  I edited into a short clip.  After sharing it with some friends they thought that it was too cute not to share with more people.  Below is the video of the fawn's rescue!  So heart warming!
