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.

Noah's First Pheasant Hunt

Noah, 8-years-old on the left, with their Dad, Mike Moncada and Isaiah, 10-years-old on the right before the hunt.

Mike Moncado, my Facebook friend, owns Bear Creek Kennels and a small business Hunt Test Organization called, Upland Gundog Association L.L.C., (Facebook) and (Website).  His Bear Creek website can be seen at  He lives in the heart of Eastern Iowa's farmlands where he trains, guides and raises pups for hunting and companion homes.

This morning he took his son Noah on his very first pheasant hunt on the river bottom in Iowa County.  With one shot...he had one kill!  It was retrieved by the dog that started it all, 11-year-old girl "BEAR."  She still has it!  This is his very first rooster.  Mike was so proud of his accomplishment.
After a 20 minute search, their 11-year-old lab, BEAR, found Noah's first rooster which was shot on public land near Marengo, Iowa.  Mike said, "Way to go son! Dad's proud of you"!

A great picture of Noah with his first tail feathers in the bag!

My congrats to Noah on his first pheasant hunt today and they can't wait to go again this afternoon and all of tomorrow.  Wishing you guys the best of luck!

Now it seems to me that love for pheasant hunting runs in your blood. Noah is already loving the thing too.
