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.

Tennessee Turkey & Deer


I have a dear friend, Sharon, who loves to turkey hunt and lives in Tennessee.  When her husband was transferred to Vicksburg for a year, we got together and went to my hunting camp, Jasper Bottom, in Claiborne County and hunted for a whole week and had a blast. Since she and her husband have gone back to Tennessee, they put up this cam to see what's walking by on their land.  I love this picture of the turkey...looks like he's posing for the picture!  She has invited me up this Spring for a turkey hunt and I hope I can make the trip. 

Deer caught on cam.  Very nice!

We haven´t turkey here in Sweden. Only in farms our at the zoo. It´s not an animal to hunt. I hope you will get there and get some ...
