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.

Ashley's First Bear!

My hunting friend, Linda, "Sunshine" who lives in Mount Vernon, ME, sent me pictures of her daughter, Ashley, with her very first bear.  She was hunting with her Dad, "Bob" in New Brunswick and used a 7mm 08 to bring it down.  The bear weighed 130 lbs. 

Ashley is shown here with her Dad and you can see by the look on his face how proud he is of her accomplishments.  She is also an avid deer and turkey hunter and have posted pictures of her hunts.  

Her Mom, a deer hunter herself, and I met about 13 years ago on a forum called, and have stayed in touch all these years.  

My sincere congrats to Ashley at 16 years old harvesting her very first bear in our great wild outdoors!  Way to go Ashley!

Those are great pictures! I am sure papa is so proud of Ashley. She looks so young to have downed the big bear like that. I see one proud daddy over there. I bet she would have some trinkets from The Best Hunting Knife Sale tucked somewhere around her tool box. I hope to see more of Ashley’s adventure.
