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.

The Old Hunting Buddies

Bill's older brother Joe, (in white shirt).  Also in picture, Jim Warren, (back) Tommy and Craig Poche and Jim Fitzpatrick with hand in his pocket all standing around telling old hunting stories with Bob and Joe looking on.

Boats stored for fishing, etc.

Lake to the south side and that wraps around towards the back of the camp.  Bob and I used to fish in this lake.  

Jackson and I played throwing the rocks into the lake. His grandmother and I worked at the Corps of Engineers together.

We ended up trying to throw the rocks in the open area of an old rusted pipe drain. 

A pretty flower along the main road.

Jackson standing on the main road coming into the camp. He is one lucky little boy to be able to grow up and enjoy a camp setting like this.  I'm sure he will be a good hunter one day.  His Dad was one of the kids enjoying the camp when I was there and now his son is walking in his shoes.  To be continued...

It really is Farmchick and hope I get to go back again one day for another visit. Too bad we had to pull out of it...but I have a lot of fond memories that will always be with me like my first 8 pt. buck that I harvested there. You can check it out on my website at:
