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.

A Friday Afternoon Hunt

On my way last Friday afternoon to hunt at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on Christmas Road at the edge of the MS Delta.  

My hunting friend, Rex Howell took me to the Game Warden Stand to hunt which is adjacent to the Hillside National Wildlife Refuge.  I have hunted this stand numerous times before.  Two does appear from the right side at about 125 yards between 4:30 and 5:00.  

I was hunting under the stand since I have been having problems with my knees/legs and had a chair and ground blind set up.  

To the left, a hog wallow.  I did hear hogs and turkeys in the area.

Looking through the ladder rung step towards the refuge.  

The woods from behind the stand.

Deer poop in the field!

Looking for blood after I shot my .270...but sadly I missed my deer.  

Having a campfire at a deer camp is a must to end the day! 

To be continued.....
