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.

Straight Heart Shot


This young archery hunter, 13 year-old teen, made a clean straight heart shot.  His name is Clayton Coyle and has been hunting since he was 5 years old.  He said it's easily the greatest hunt of his life and will probably always be.  He was hunting with his father and both are so glad to share this with the world.  He has dreamed like a lot of hunters to hopefully one day to host his own TV show.  He has had a lot of awesome hunts and will hopefully continue to for years to come.  He films all his hunts and said I think you are going to enjoy what I will be bringing to the table...so, please enjoy!  Published on March 10, 2014

My congrats to Clayton Coyle for this once in a lifetime hunt in our great wild outdoors!

Shared by Full Choke Outdoors  - You can tell by the amount of blood that immediately pours out that he severed the animal's aorta, thus any blood that the heart pumped went right through that wound.  It's also possible he got a lung or two, judging by how quickly the elk dropped.  There is a small, soft spot at the base of the neck of an elk that is a perfect spot to take this kind of close range shot.  The heart, lungs, and the main arteries of the animal are all in line with the spot.  We wouldn't recommend taking this shot at anything over 20 yards, but at 10 yards, it's a great shot if the game has stopped moving.
