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.

End It Like A Boss!

This past Thursday my Facebook friend, Michael Christian of Baltimore, Maryland, killed this monster turkey. He stated that he was only able to get out three times during the Maryland season due to work.  The first time he could have rolled one but held off.  The second time nothing and this time put a pellet straight through his head at 38 steps and stayed high to protect the fan on the most beautiful bird he had ever shot.
 
Michael is ready to paint the family room!

Michael commented that he has never measured a bird in his life and never put a tape on a buck either.  He loves every second of the hunt and the memories lives forever inside of him.  He has never submitted pictures either and that's not something that he and his family cares about.  What he cares about is the person or persons he hunts with that is loyal and a real friend.  He had learned over the years how to pick them and how to delete the bad seeds that suck the life out of you.  "Here's to a great hunt but even more important people who have your back and stand at your side even in your absence.  That's my hunting and fishing partners," Michael said.

My congrats to Michael on a successful turkey season in our great wild outdoors and words of wisdom!
