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.

A Golfer's Woes

Woe is he, Rex, over at Deer Camp Blog that he cannot go out and play golf because of the rain!  It has been raining non stop here in Mississippi for the last few days and predicting more to come.  While waiting for the rain to stop, here are a few "goofy" golf facts that he many not know about.

1.  The first golf balls were stuffed with feathers.  The tighter packed the feathers, the further the ball would fly.  This type of ball was used until 1848.

2.  Golf was banned in Scotland from 1457 to 1502 to ensure citizens wouldn't waste time when preparing for the English invasion.

3.  There are 336 dimples on a regulation golf ball.  A dimpled golf ball can travel up to four times farther than smooth-surfaced golf balls.

4.  When golf was first played professionally there were only 13 rules.  Now there are 34.

The only problem with golf is that the slow people are always in front of you and the fast people are always behind you.
