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.

Squirrel Hunting Pix

This was my first time to hunt at the Delta National Forest and my very first squirrel hunt. We had to go to a check-in station to sign in and to let the MDWFP know what we were hunting. While walking into the woods from the road I came across a deer skull and also saw some trees that still had some snow at the base of the trunks.  

Trying to find a squirrel to shoot.

Had help with two American Treeing Feist dogs named Bear (puppy) and Boots (Mama) trying to get a scent on a squirrel. 

First of many trees that the dogs were treeing.  

Bear being a puppy was trying to get on a scent.  

Sun trying to come out on a cloudy but mild afternoon!

Saw this old rotten tree stump with a lot of holes in it.  

An interesting log laying on the ground.

Found a scrape with a deer hoof print.

Above the scrape was some broken-off limbs.  

A slough.

Swamp meandering through the woods.

Trying to make some noise, anything to get them to come out, but had no luck.  While walking out I came across another deer skull.  After checking out it was really nice to get back in the woods once again and experience the great wild outdoors!
