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.

Moose Looses

According to The Anchorage Daily News, dated, January 23, 2012, an 85-year-old Alaskan woman, used a grain shovel to fend off an agitate moose that was stomping her husband.

George Murphy says his wife saved his life.

Her husband, 82-year-old pilot, who flew for three decades for the Iditarod Trail Dog Race, was hiking with his golden retrievers near the Willow airport.  He saw the moose and dove in the snow, but the moose started stomping him.

His wife, Dorothea, who is 5 feet tall and weighs 97 pounds, grabbed a big shovel and hit the moose in the body and head.  She then ran for help, and Murphy was rushed by medical helicopter to an Anchorage hospital.  He was in good condition Monday with a 6-inch-gash to his head and a big wound on his left leg from the attack.
