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.

A Carpet of Leaves

This is another win for nature, sort of - - at first glance, it looks like any ordinary road on an October day last month, covered with thousands of fallen leaves.  Except the carpet of leaves has abrupt, geometric edges - made all the more striking by the patches of unaffected tarmac next to it. Careful inspection reveals the leaves are actually embedded on the tarmac. 

Motorists and pedestrians were baffled by the bizarre spectacle.  It is speculated that the early fall of autumn leaves this season mixed with the scorching heat London suffered from September softened a few sections of the tarmac, where the leaves became embedded after car tires ran over them creating a colorful collage that would probably last for many months.  

Nature is full of beautiful surprises!
