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.

Finally, Pictures of Ethan's First Doe

I finally got the pictures of Ethan (my grandson's) first doe that was taken in Hinds County, MS, while hunting with his step-grandfather, Charles Ivy.  This happened about 2 years and 7 months ago.  He shot the doe in the late afternoon and they both looked for it and had to go back the next day and was lucky enough to find it.  It had ran over on someones property and they were able to retrieve it.  The temps were cold enough for the deer to lay overnight.  I'm so happy that he found his 135lb. doe.  I'm not sure if he was initiated or not with a bloodied face, being his first deer.  I've taken Ethan hunting with me a good many times but he was never lucky enough to get one.  To me, the quality time spent with my grandson is cherished in my lifetime, deer or no deer.   

Shown here with his step-grandfather, Charles, helping him skin out his deer.

This picture was taken of Ethan the night before we left to go to the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Camp for a Youth Hunt weekend in the MS Delta, November 2009.  He used my .270 Ruger (shown here) but did not harvest a deer but had a great time with all the other young hunters. 

Recently, my grandson joined the Air Force and will report to duty October 2012 at Lackland, AFB, TX.  We wish him the very best of luck and thanking him for wanting to serve our country.  May God bless and protect him from harms way during his tour-of-duty.
