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.

Honey Bears

I recently read about some black bears in a town of Eolia, Kentucky taking a sweet, sticky cue from Winnie the Pooh in the search for honey.

Bears are roaming around in Letcher County, invading bee hives.  Carl Church says a bear broke through a window to get into his building where he keeps bee hives.

It's not the first time bears have ditched the garbage cans for something sweeter.

Machaela Lee says bears have gotten to her bee trees as well as berry patches near her home.

Lee says bears can slow down honey production, especially if they get to the queen bee.

The beekeepers say they've seen multiple bears on their property, including a mom and two cubs.

Incredible! It seems they all have been taking a lesson from Pooh.
