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.

Fish Camp - THISISIT

A memory plaque that was erected for Keith Laurie...he actually picked out this spot himself near the river's edge before he died.  He was a really nice guy and a great hunter. We all miss him very much!

Well, THISISIT, what is left of it.  It gets flooded out a lot and Bob and I used to spend nights here way back in the late 80's...The sign above the porch is in the kitchen at the main camp house now.  We liked the name so much that our license tag on our 2006 GMC Sierra is, THISIT!

Just inside the door to the chowdown/kitchen area.  Looks like a stove on top of a table.

A bunk room off the screen-in area of the front porch.

Back room with more bunk beds.

Side view with containers to catch the water as if falls off the house...those have been there forever!

Nothing last forever...

Towboat Arlen B. Cenac, Sr., heading down the river as we head back to the main camp house.

A good reminder, with the camp house in view, to unload your gun before you get back into camp.
