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.

Fawns Inside Hog Area

My friend, Elaine, who lives in Arkansas, sent me this picture she took Saturday of one of the twin fawns inside a neighbors hog fenced wired land just down from her.  The other fawn seems a bit more afraid, or shy, and runs or hides more quickly than this one does.  It's funny, she said, how being in the middle of a National Forest, and hunters all around, (even with dogs) these two babies seem to either not know or understand death yet, or they are just getting used to people more, by staying inside the fence, even though they can easily jump over it...they just tend to stay there. She thinks their mother must have been shot because none are ever around them.


One of the fawns!

That's a cute picture. I'm certain as they grow some older they'll learn to run and hide and disappear quickly into the thicket and out of site.

I'm sure you are right about that DeanO...I would think it's part of their nature...the way God made them.

Cute ! We have rules that say that we are not allowed to shoot the mother. If we for example have a lot of moose we can get permission to shoot 1-2 females.
