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.

Mike ~ The Deer Whisperer!

My Facebook friend, Mike Persichini of Troy, Michigan, loves to go to his city's nature preserve and feed the deer apples and corn to gain their trust to photograph them up close in their natural habitat.  He has come up with some awesome pictures that you would never see otherwise. He has one deer, Bucky, that he feeds right out of his hand.  He also feeds the wild animals in his own backyard.  Mike is - The Deer Whisperer!

A nice rack!

Mike named this deer "Moose" with an apple in his mouth!

Looks like everybody's happy now!

Mike said, What a mess!

Yum Yum!

Mike feeding Bucky in our great wild outdoors!

Mike said this is not a tame deer!  He has been feeding him treats since he was a fawn. He said, I friend all the deer in the city in the dead of winter when they need it!  20 degrees below zero and I am out there with food.  You would be my friend also!

The Boneyard is still alive in his own backyard!


He can't get enough of this - two cameras in one spot!

Those are some cool pics, I especially like the one where the deer and racoons were eating.

Thanks Rick! Mike has some awesome pictures of deer at his home and at his city nature preserve park on his Facebook page. It is amazing how close he can get to them. Thanks for coming by and need to get by and see you soon! Have a great weekend. :)
