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.

Look Who's Boss

This is the Photo-of-the Week at Cuddleback Digital dot com.

A very cool shot that I wanted to share with you from the Facebook page of Cuddleback Digital by John White - Carrsville, VA. 

Here's a great action shot of a boss gobbler, "showing a jake who was in charge," as John puts it. Interestingly, over the past weekend, I watched from my blind as the big strutting tom I was attempting to coax closer was run off by two over-sized jakes with attitudes. The two jakes continued to patrol the area, disrupting my efforts to call in a tom. Next year, I vowed, I will take care of one of them.  

Good luck to you John in getting Tom Turkey in our great wild outdoors!
