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.

Are Pigs Smart?

Last Sunday, I wrote a post on a Wild Boar's Boiler Room and just recently came across an article about how smart pigs are.

Its seems like the pig advocates the world over won a victory for the pig by establishing this past March 1 as Pig Day.  This was a day to reflect on the vast intelligence of this often underestimated animal.

Just how smart are pigs?  Scientists have proven that they are smarter than chimpanzees.  In one experiment, pigs were taught simple words and phrases, and three year later, they still remembered the words and could follow commands!

Other evidence that pigs are intelligent animals?  Mother pigs sing to their babies while nursing. Pigs lead complex social lives similar to primates.  They often try to outsmart each other.  While all Pig Day advocates agree that pigs are smart animals, their only remaining debates is how to celebrate.  Should we enjoy a feast of bacon, ham, and pork chops - or not?  You be the judge!  (SPS Newsletter)

They are smart and tasty. I only see them on our place when I don't have a gun, they must have a spy in the camp!

You are right about that Jack and Ken that they are smart. My husband got one in the MS Delta where our friends invite us up to their camp with over 2,000 acres and wild pigs all over the place. We usually eat it when we go up and it is very tasty. We still have some in our freezer also. I saw one this past December as soon as I got on my deer stand before daylight. I missed my opportunity to get it but hopefully this year will see another one. Maybe you need to pack a .44 mag on your hip Ken! :)

Here me now. Any human being who takes the life of another being and calls it sport, or a tradition is damning their soul. I found this website after researching the philosophy of a hunter on google. I need not look any further. This has all the information and insight (if you can call it that) to write my paper. Marian, a religious, family loving, down home hunting kinda gal. Through in there hypocrite ok? I literally laugh out loud when I read a good.. jesus loves me, bible thumping christian woman talking about killing innocent animals. You people are the true cancer on this earth that is keeping any positive progress from happening. Open your eyes Billy Bob and Sammy Joe and realize there is NO SKILL REQUIRED to TAKE THE LIFE of an animal with a GUN who is armed with NOTHING. It's like going fishing in a goldfish bowl. Do you really think JESUS the man of peace and love would smile upon you and your family for going out and killing bambi and his mother? for what? meat you could have bought at shoprite? screw population control talk, WE are the ones who are overpopulated. Dont quote the bible to me, it's an outdated, played to death fiction story and it's not holding up anymore.

try this, go VEGAN, go VEGETARIAN- that means dont eat anything with eyes that are capable of shedding tears out of. try being healthy, you could stand to lose a few pounds im sure, so why not. gain some compassion in your heart, stop murdering defenseless beings.
