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 Different View On Gun Control


Interesting slant on things: 
AMERICA'S HUNTERS --- 
Pretty Amazing!
Description: 
The world's largest army... America 's hunters! 
I had never thought about 
this...
Description: 
A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a 
handful of states and 
arrived at a striking 
conclusion:
Description: 

There were over 600,000 hunters 
this season in the state of Wisconsin .. 
Allow me to restate that number: 
600,000
Over the last several months, 
Wisconsin's hunters became the eighth largest army in 
the world.


Description:


More men under arms than in Iran. 
More than France and Germany combined.
These men deployed to 
the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin , to hunt with 
firearms, and no one was killed.
Description: 
That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and 
Michigan's 700,000 hunters, 
all of whom have now returned home safely. 
Toss in a quarter million hunters 
in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the 
hunters of those four states alone 
would comprise the largest army in the world. 
And then add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states. 
It's millions more.
The point?
America will forever be safe 
from foreign invasion with that 
kind of home-grown firepower.

Hunting... 
it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a matter of national 
security.
********************Description:

That's why all enemies, 
foreign AND domestic, 
want to see us 
disarmed...
Food for thought, 
when next we consider gun control. 
Overall it's true, 
so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters 
don't possess the same skills as soldiers, the question 
would still remain:
What army of 2 million would want to face 30, 40, 50 million armed citizens???

(IF YOU AGREE, AS I DO, PASS IT ON, I FEEL GOOD THAT I HAVE AN ARMY OF MILLIONS WHO WOULD PROTECT OUR 
LAND AND I SURE DON'T WANT THE GOVERNMENT TAKING CONTROL OF THE POSSESSION OF FIREARMS)
Description: 
For the sake of our freedom, 
don't ever allow gun control, 
or the confiscation of our guns.
