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.

Deer Antler vs. Mare

Evidently this mare laid down to roll and rolled over onto a deer antler according to Dr. T. Thompson of Springtown, TX.  The mare was sedated, given an IV, anti-inflammatories and antibiotics.  A local anesthetic was injected around the periphery of the puncture while a short video of the removal was made. (Dr. T Thompson Veterinary Services, 5102 E Hwy 199, Springtown, TX  76082)
