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.

Morning Hunt at Jasper Bottom

Richard Lack took this picture of Ethan and I together Saturday before our hunt.  He told us that Sammy had shot an 8 point buck around 7:00 that morning but it ran off in the overflow of the Big Black River that has caused part of our hunting ground to go under water from the recents rains. Two of the hunters had to leave the camp to retrieve a boat to find the 8 pt.  Thankfully, it was found and had laid up on part of a higher ground.

Picture of Ethan walking into the woods to hunt with me.  I put him on F6 and I went to F5.  F6 is a newer stand that was built for this season and is the same one I shot my doe off of at 200 yards.  We stayed on our stands until 1:30 and came out.  We jumped a deer going in and I jumped one going to my stand.  It was a beautiful morning to hunt.  We did not see anything but enjoyed being in the woods with nature.
