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.

Deer and Coyote Pix

My Mississippi friend, Spirit Quest, who now lives in Arkansas, took these pictures of a doe and a coyote over the weekend and sharing them with you. She said that the doe absolutely froze in her tracks, and got one shot looking directly ahead of herself.  The last shot she got, she had turned and started walking back into the woods.

Hunting season is knocking on our door and fall is in the air.  Can't wait to get back in the woods to hog/deer hunt at Rex's (Deer Camp Blog) famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club in the MS Delta. Looking forward to a great hunting season in our wild outdoors!

Doe startled.

Doe caught in camera.


Pictures of deer and coyote taken about a mile from her home.

Footnote:  Spirit Quest takes her camera everywhere she goes and never had a trail cam.  She lives in the National Forest of Scott County, between Mena and Waldron, Arkansas and see these animals daily when driving the roads, not to mention them coming through her yard almost daily! Her land edges the Ouachita National Forest.  What a lucky lady hunter!
