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 Wedged Deer

A Facebook friend that I follow, Patrick Montgomery, said that his hunt yesterday went pretty crazy for him in the high country.  He was wanting to kill the deer that was probably 170ish.  The two were bedded up in some thick brush and he couldn't really tell who was who.  With orders to bring home meat, he felt like he didn't really care.  He said he figured he had a 50/50 chance and shot the vitals he could get with an arrow to.  It had been a while since he shot one with his bow and he felt good. 

He had glassed a tall boy earlier but it was not him and was his little 4/4 buddy laying in some thick spruce trees when he shot.

A closer look at the tall boy!

The deer then tumbled about 500 ft. down a mountain side with an arrow sticking out of him and this is how it ended up.
