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.

Going Turkey Hunting

This weekend is the opening of turkey season here in MS and I will be trying my hand at turkey hunting after so many years.  I will also be taking my dance instructor, Sharon, who hails from TN, turkey hunting with me.  I recently posted her with her first turkey taken in TN and now she wants to get a MISSISSIPPI bird!  One day last week, I took her down to my camp, Jasper Botton, in Claiborne County, to scout around for turkey signs and showed her the layout of the hunting grounds.  Hopefully, she and I will harvest one!  Wish us luck!

We put up a target to shoot at and zero in the shotguns. 

On the way home we pulled over on side of road and I took some pictures of cows.  This little fellow was giving me a look...I guess he was trying to figure me out!

This little guy decided to get up in the food trough.  

Cows, cows, and more cows!
