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.

Closing Work-Day Camp Pix

Hershel, Rex's Dad, showing me where the pond was planted with millet and I asked him where was the water and he looked up at the sky and pointed towards heaven and said...he was waiting for the Good Lord to produce rain for the ducks.  There are two pond stands located here.    

Herschel showing me a clump of peanuts that he pulled up from the 500 acres that was planted to be harvested soon.  As Rex puts it...should attract every varmint within 200 miles to snack on and there ought to be a hog killin of monumental proportions that will prove to be very interesting.  

Hershel and Bob enjoying a break and a cool breeze.

Bob took this picture of Rex and I relaxing after a work day at the Christmas Place.

Dying embers at the camp fire before we left.

Rex took this picture of us before we broke camp.  Picture of him with the guys can be viewed at his Deer Camp Blog site.  From left to right, Bob, myself, Paul, Terry, Hershel and Tommy.
