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.

#17 ~ Another One Bites The Dust

My Facebook friend, Kareen Beinhauer killed #17 hog this past weekend in Alpine, Texas.  The story below of the kill in her own words.  
I was out before 10:00 p.m. I figured I would have the luck like I have had lately so I didn't hold out much hope that a hog would come in. The moon is full enough that I could see quite well and sometime after 1:00 a.m. I thought I could see a shadow or two and sure enough, two hogs came in and started eating the corn. I thought about taking a lung shot but I said to myself, screw it, take the headshot and I did and down he went. He actually tried to get up and take off but I put another one in him and he was done. I am so happy!!!!!!! 17 for the year, 153 total! 

She used a 6.8 SPC Rifle to shoot her hog.  My congratulations to Kareen in our great wild and wonderful TX outdoors!  Way to go girlfriend!
