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.

Shot Placement


I have encounted all three shot placements during my 28 years of hunting.  I have also harvested two bucks with a neck shot that is not shown here.  It is very important to make the shot count and be a clean one.   Hunting season is right around the corner in our great wild outdoors!

I agree you need to practice shot placement for a quick and humane kill. Yes, Marian you are so right. The season will be here before you know it.
