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.

The Woodland Ninja



I came across this blog the other day called, Babe In The Woods. The blog is owned by Kim who lives in Louisiana and is a nurse by profession.  She considers herself a novice hunter and loving the path she is on.  She has had three hunting seasons under her belt and loves hunting and the camaraderie it brings.  Meeting new people and making new friends is what hunting provides her. She thought that hunting was a solitary endeavor but while you are in the stand it is nothing but solitary.  After the hunt her family and friends are eager to find out about her hunt.  Even friends on Facebook and the sporting goods store asked her about how her season went.  Technology also has provided her the means to stay in touch with her friends while hunting.  Text messages fly through the air on each hunt she goes.  She loves going on women hunts and enjoys sitting by the camp fire telling tales and congratulating each other on their successes...and sympathize and encourage the ones in their failures.  Go over and say hello to Kim and read about her accomplishments in our great wild outdoors.

You are welcome DeanO and Lindsjo taxar...It's great to see women in the woods hunting for food and it really helps out on the grocery bill as well.
Good luck foxhunting...sounds like fun. I saw one (red fox) about three weeks ago taking my husband to my step-sons camp (we used to hunt there also but fees are out-of-site) and we both saw it...after I dropped him off at the ferry where he met us and going back he had ran across the road headed into the woods. Could not believe I saw it twice in one night. That was pretty cool! :)
