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.

Beautiful Work Day @ Camp!

When we got to the camp everyone was out and soon came in and had breakfast.  I had gotten up early and cooked deer sausage and buttered biscuits for the guys before I left home.  They all enjoyed and later took off to do some more work in the fields.  While they were gone I tackled the house whole chores.  Bob did not go with them this time but stayed behind to help me and later he took a nice long nap on the sofa.  The dogs, TRIGGER and CAMO were left at the camp.  Below are some pictures I took around the camp off and on while taking breaks.

While out on the patio taking a break CAMO joined me.  She looked so pitiful and sad because her master ran off and left her behind.

TRIGGER and CAMO followed me back behind the camp house for a short walk.

Backyard of the famous Christmas Place.  A lot of wood/brush piled up for campfires at the far right. 

Mushrooms all over the place.

Pretty spider lilies on the front lawn of the old witches house. 

Bricks left over from the old witches house built in 1903, according to Rex, but was demolished this year.  The old home was located just to the right of the camp on the side of the hill.

The hanging rack I'm sure will be loaded down this coming deer season with deer and hogs.
