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.

Summer Retreat

I received this beautiful card from one of my classmates, Kay who lives in California for my birthday back in January.  I have known her since the first grade at St. Francis Xavier Academy where we went to school 12 full years in one whole city block. She always remembers me on my birthday and wanted to share with you the card she sent me.  It is a painting by Bob Travers.  She found the card while visiting "Trees of Mystery", among the Redwood and ferns and said it was magical.  It was at the Paul Bunyan Gift Shop where she saw this card by Bow & Sparrow and thought of me.  It's so nice to be thought of and I'm so happy that we are staying in touch after all these years.  I am truly blessed!
