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.

A Structural Engineer In Action

Whether you're a bird person or not, this is stunning!  Not to detract from the sheer magic of it, but in practical terms, how MANY trips would a bird have to make with that tiny quantity of mid/clay it could carry?  (and how far from the nest is the source?)

If you take the construction of a circular bowl in your stride as instinctive, how the heck does the bird come up with the windbreak/entrance design that shields the eggs/chicks from the elements and at what point in fashioning the bowl do they start to construct it?  
















Even if you think you could build this...
Try it without using your hands!
And now...stop to consider this:
Where did the knowledge to do this come from?
TRULY THERE HAS TO BE A 
"MASTER CARPENTER"?
