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.

Tracks, Corn, Pie Plate & Greens

Nice size deer tracks in backyard coming up from a deep ravine where power lines are located.

Acorns all over the place to feed the deer.

Corn is laid out for the deer to eat on the other side of a big ridge in their backyard.

A pie plate in the peach tree to scare the birds away.  Deer eat peaches as well but would rather have corn.

Wal-Mart bags on stakes to keep the deer out of the garden of greens.  It works!

We have some friends that live right next to a power line out in the county.  Deer come up in their backyard all the time.  They just built a new deck with a roof the length of their home so they can sit out and watch the deer crossing over to the other side of a large ridge.  When we were leaving they gave us some peaches they had put up so I can make a peach cobbler.  Yes!
