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 II)

At the Cerro Bonita Ranch there are many roads and traditionally named after ladies only.  I am fortunate to have a road named after me and it's called, "Marian's Mile" for my smile.  It was great to once again have my picture taken by my road sign in our great wild outdoors! 

Marian's Mile for my smile.

To the right of my road is Abby's Meadow Rd.

 Kristina, step-granddaughter and her boyfriend, Jared, riding in the back of the truck.

At the swimming hole.

Ron going to try and catch a frog at the swimming hole.

No luck!  The frog outsmarted him!

Ron showed me the trees that were growing out the side of the mountain rock near cowboy camp.

At Cowboy Camp

Looking back at the truck. They left Bob and I alone to go check on something at cowboy camp. They did this before and it was like Deja Vu all over again and wondering if a bear would appear.

Karen and Kristina came back with an elk vertebrae and some bones.  I guess the bear or mountain lion ate the elk up!

We went up and down some pretty steep roads which was once used for silver mining years ago.

The name of this rock is called, "Mountain Lion" because one was sighted here!
