Today is the 3rd anniversary of the creation of my blog. I had no idea at the time when I started this blog that I would meet so many nice people like you. My blog is a part of me now and has become a part of my daily routine. I had started it back in November of 2006 and after four posts...I just stopped until February of 2007. If it were not for my mentor, Rex Howell of Deer Camp Blog coming to my website, A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter, and leaving a comment in January 2008, I may have dropped it altogether. He encouraged me to pick up back up and go with it! Also, I'm grateful to everyone who made comments and I'm looking forward to another year of posting to my blog, Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc.
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.
