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.

Cerro Bonita Ranch (Part III)

Making my way back to the cabin from walking to the generator house to take a picture of the bear scrape on the door frame.  Half way to the generator I heard a loud growl like a big old bear but it was Ron trying to scare me.  What really got my attention was hearing a snap on a branch on the hill back behind the generator and decided I better head back to the cabin pronto!

Looking at the cabin as I make my way back.

Karen climbed up on one side to the cabin to see what was in a nest she found.

A nest of eggs!


Mama bird circling and trying to get back to her eggs.

Karen found this rusty old ice pick or log carrier while we were coming in towards the cabin and told Ron to stop.  She got out and ran over and picked it up.  It's no telling how long it had laid there in the woods and her keen eyes saw it and is now displayed at the cabin as a conversational piece.  They are hamming it up!

Ike having a blast fetching sticks as we threw them into the brook.

Taking life easy!
