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.

Youth On The Hunt

Landen Malone, 13, killed this 11-point buck while hunting with his grandfather, Glenn Wells, on family land in Claiborne County.  He used a 7mm-08 to take down the 220-pound buck from 250 yards.  The buck's rack measured 24 inches on the main beam, 22 inches inside and had a 7-inch front tine.  Landen is the son of Mel Malone and Heather Wells Clark.

Cole McLeod shot this 7-point, 153-pound buck while hunting with his father, Bo McLeod, in November.  The deer had a 15-inch spread.

Brothers Zane and Peyton Flaharty each took a deer within 15 minutes of each other while hunting on private land in southern Warren County. Zane, 11, killed a 7-pointer and 6-year-old Peyton's first buck was a 3-pointer.  The brothers were hunting with their grandfather, Steve Reed, and father, Paul Flaharty.

My congrats to all the hunters above in our great wild outdoors!  So proud of each one of you!
