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.

Country Practice Shoot

Getting set-up to do some practice shooting weekend before last in the country.

My target was on the left, daughter Kathy, center and Jamie, right. 

Kathy and my great grandson, Ian walking back to the truck to practice shooting.

Kathy went first shooting a 30.06.  

Jamie with Great Grandson, Ian with a .22 mag.

Ian wanted to shoot my .22 rifle with scope.  He was having a hard time looking through it since he has a .22 rifle that has only iron sites.

Jamie shooting his rifle.

Ian wanted to shoot my .22 rifle again using a plastic jug as a target.

Look at all the holes he put in the plastic jug.  He is going to be a good hunter one day.

Showing off his skate board to me.  It's almost as big as he is.

Took a close-up picture of him.  I love him so much!

Kathy's target pattern with 30.06.  I shot my .22 rifle to help with my flinching since I have not hunted in over a year because of shoulder surgery.  Next, I will get my .270 zeroed in for rifle season.
