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 Bonito Ranch (Part I)

CERRO BONITO which means "Beautiful Hills."

Only place you can pick up a cell phone signal.  See the beautiful hills!

Bear Rock

An Elk rub?

Sign says - CABIN 
-------->  
No Right On Red!

Outhouse - Generator!

Bear has clawed bottom of door trying to get in.


Bob on porch getting ready to sit down and rest.

Looking to the left of the cabin with steep hills and rocks.

A small brook in front of cabin.  It was pretty dried up from lack of rain.

Ike's having fun playing in the brook and cooling off.

We saw where a bear had tore up their hammock at the cabin or he took a nap!

Beautiful country!

Bear scratches on the door is a little to close for me.

You had a great setting for some R&R and a visit with family. :)

Yes, it is beautiful there and the sky is so blue. Yep, bear scratches on the door is close but the time before we were there, bear scat was on the deck where we sit and watch the world go by. It really was a relaxing trip and may be our last one with Bob's health issues. Took a lot of pictures just in case.

Thanks for your visit CDGardens! :)
