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.

Grant's First Deer!


This past Wednesday, Grant, shot his first deer, a very nice 8 point buck!  My Class of 1959 classmate, Walter, sent me a picture of his proud grandson yesterday.  Walter's son has a deer camp in Lowndes County, west of Montgomery, Alabama, where the deer was bagged this past Wednesday.  This is a great birthday present for Grant since he just turned 13 years old.  My congrats to Grant who is now hooked for life on being a hunter in our great wild outdoors.

This is awesome - my congratulations to a GREAT first deer! O - Merry Christmas too

Walter Little, Jr. said...

Thanks for posting this, Marian. He sure is proud, and he can recount every moment of it, especially the nice doe he let pass in hopes of a buck. He wants to mount the trophy in his room so it is the first thing he sees when he gets up every morning.

Thanks DeanO - it's always exciting to see a youngster get his/her first deer. That is something you will never ever forget! :)

Marian Love Phillips said...

You are so welcome Walter...my pleasure. I'm so happy for him and like I said...he will never ever forget that day. I had my first one mounted also and was a 6-pt. buck! :)

You both are proud grandparents! Am I right, Marian? --You for Ethan and Walter for Grant. Hehe. Are they of the same age? Anyway, they say that most first time experiences are exciting! Sure enough, Grant’s and Ethan’s first deer hunting experiences are memorable not only for them, but for both “grandparents” as well. ;)
