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.

Happy Blogoversary To Me!

Today, November 7, 2011, is my 5th Blogoversary!  I can’t believe it has been 5 years already and have met so many nice people who enjoy the sport of hunting as much as I do. 

It all started one day while online reading my next door neighbor’s blog and thought to myself…why not make a blog of my own!  I thought I would start out blogging about my love of hunting and post deer hunts with stories and pictures of my husband, family and friends.  That’s when Marian’sHunting Stories, etc., etc., etc., was born.
 
As you can see from the archives, I did not blog from December 2006 to the end of January 2007.  I lost all interest until January 29, 2007.  At that time, I had my own personal website, “A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter,” which I have now converted into a blog.  A nice guy came by my site by way of a forum and took the time to sign my guestbook.  I always send a message of thanks to anyone who signs it!  I found out that this person was also a Mississippian and later on through his e-mails and calls, he encouraged me to continue to write more about my hunting experiences.  Now, after five years, he is still my mentor and dear friend to both my husband and I.  He’s a very fine southern gentleman and you could not meet anyone nicer.  You may know him by the name of Rex Howell, a.k.a., Editor, over at DeerCamp Blog.  If it wasn’t for him, I would not be here today celebrating my 5th anniversary with you.  I owe him a great deal of gratitude for taking the time to stop by my website and from that moment has grown into a true friendship that will forever last.    

I also want to THANK YOU, all my readers, for your support, comments, emails, friendship and love.  I look forward to your visits and another year of posting to Marian’s Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc.
