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.

Birds Of A Feather Do Flock Together

While on my quick weekend get-a-way to New Orleans, I stayed with family members that had ducks in their backyard with a lagoon and had a blast taking picture of them. Hope you enjoy the shots that I took!

The geese were eating and honking away!

Went that a way...

No, that a way!

I was told this was called a turkey duck!

I was surprised how close I could get to this duck and just stood there taking pictures.

Thinking about getting in the water.

Here goes...

Ahhhhhh!

Later in the afternoon I caught this turkey duck resting.

Then suddenly appeared this beautiful white duck!

Look whats swimming in the lagoon! 

Beautiful Mallard Ducks!


Love the mirrored images of the white duck!

Thanks guys...never seen a turkey duck before but was told this is what it was. Two of them flew in and was hanging out at the lagoon behind their home. I really enjoyed taking pictures of them all. Glad you enjoyed them! :)
