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.

Azaleas Plus A Bee

The rains have just about beat all the blooming azalea bushes down.  A lot of blooms are on the ground and it makes for a very pretty pink carpet!  Most of the red azaleas have died out but a few are still blooming. Of course, the bees are buzzing and the butterflies are enjoying what is left of the flowers on the bushes in the woods.  The dogwood flowers are almost gone and left a white carpet as well.  The trees all have new leaves and the forest is ready for the months ahead.  I can't take a picture of the trains passing by the house now with all the foliage on the trees but glad I was able to get a couple before nature took over.
