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.

Boys Scout Road Deer Trails

Recently, we visited our friends, Billy and Peggy on Boys Scout Road, north of town.  Peggy told me that they see deer all the time in their back yard and they come up out of the bottom from here. 

Deer walk over and eat acorns at the top of the hill while browsing in their backyard.

Peggy also feeds the deer corn which they just love and has a trail running back behind the house and garage.  

Their home is located next to power lines and have been told through the years that this is a great spot to hunt.  You can't t tell from the overgrowth but an apartment complex and homes are located in the area.

They make their way back down to the other side of the ridge eating all the way.  I think she has really spoiled them rotten.

Peggy also showed me a homemade feeder below on an opposite ridge and said that it did not take them long to learn how to get more feed from it.

Looking down towards the bottom walking back up the hill...I can just imagine tons of deer walking all up and down this corridor.  Can't wait to get back on a deer stand and hunt in our great wild outdoors!
