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.

Illegal Deer Camp In WV

HINTON - Eight arrested, over a dozen deer killed, and the suspects face over $10,000 in fines!

"Over my 20 years in law enforcement, in game enforcement, this is the worst case I've encountered or seen," Captain W.W. Brogan with the Division of Natural Resources said.

Charles Powell from New Jersey, Kenneth Powell from Pennsylvania, Robert Canfield, Charley Simms, and Timothy Powell from West Virginia arrested for hunting without a license, not wearing blaze orange, and driving with loaded firearms. Police had the suspects remove the deer from their trailer to get an official head count.

According to Captain W.W. Brogan with the DNR, the suspects had NO intentions of checking the 18 deer they killed.

"These gentlemen had plans on staying in our state and hunting until the end of the week so the total number of deer, you could have only guessed what they would have had by the end of the week," Brogan said.

But the deer won't go to waste, they will all be held in a freezer and distributed to help families in need.

"Until we can find a home for each deer that you see behind us so that they don't go to waste," Brogan said.  Police tell us this type of illegal camp is a yearly issue for the hunters in West Virginia.
