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.

Oh Nooooo - A Back Yard Bear?

My dear friend/mentor, Jean and her husband, Ed, moved to MA a couple of years ago from Vicksburg to retire there and she has been telling me about seeing a bear crossing in her neighborhood in the early morning and late evening.  She posted this on her Facebook page Wednesday morning.


Bear in the back yard!  Came across the patio then to the side yard, maybe checking if the cherries were ready yet.  Sorry about the rear view - took me awhile to get things together.

I certainly wouldn't want to be out in the yard at the same time.

It is a scary site to see a bear in your backyard. I would not want to be outside either if I saw him around. My step daughter lives on the outskirts of Santa Fe, NM and has coyotes that eat their pets. We have mostly raccoons, opossums and stray cats that gives us fits but nothing to compare to this. I hope they will be safe.
