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 Big Turkey for J.D.

J. D. Huges, 88 years old, killed this turkey on opening morning at Baytree Hunting Club in Chipola, Louisiana.  He killed it by himself and in his slippers, I might add! It weighed 19 pounds and had a 9-3/4 inch beard.  It was a great thing to see because he loves to turkey hunt but hasn't been able to get in the woods in awhile because of his health.

My congrats to J. D. and hope I'm hunting well into my eighties!  Way to go!
