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.

Swedish Lady Hunting Friend

I have a Swedish hunting friend who lives on a small family farm in the highlands of Smaland, 2-1/2 miles from Vetlanda in the countryside of Sweden.  She visits my blog frequently and I wanted to share her blog site Lindsjo Taxar with you today.   She also has a website dedicated to hunting with her dogs.  

As a youngster she would go and sit with her Dad and watch him hunt.  She became so interested that she wanted to be a hunter just like him. 

She has a love for dachshunds and now trains them to hunt for deer or moose.  She became the first female test leader and went on to management training and for the hunting season 2011-12 became Deputy hunt leader in one of the hunting parties.  Several years ago she took her boyfriend hunting and now he has become involved and they hunt and train dogs together.  She said, it's a lot of fun!  

She also takes beautiful pictures of nature, wildlife and the countryside. Drop by and pay her a visit soon.  Her site should translate into English for you.  I'm wishing her a great hunting season in the wild outdoors of Sweden.

Hunting moose without dogs.

Marian - I found this wonderful blog through your friends list. See..I think the friends list is so important. I still get blocked and removed from blogs (not sure why) but I still try to join a wide diverse group of blogs.

The friends links are very important to me and enjoy meeting people all over the world. I can't understand how you would get blocked. If it has happened to me...I did not know it.
As always you are welcome to my blog anytime! :)

I don't know either. I love to visit blogs and I love to comment on blogs. I know the blog owners take time and pride to produce each blog post. The last blog I was blocked from was an RV blog I found through Erick's RV blog. It was about a lady who travels and writes from her RV. Fascinating I thought. I went back to see what was up and found she had blocked me. Oh well...I still have my favorite blogs to visit :)
