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 Forthcoming Marriage

My nephew, Joey Ables (Christopher Joseph) will be getting married in two weeks from today to a very nice lady, Candice Landers.  I do wish them all the best of luck in the world!  

This has undoubtedly been the busiest year in our family for babies and marriages. We have had two great grandchildren born in New Mexico, my oldest daughter, Theresa, re-married at St. Paul Catholic Church and another nephew, Marion Love, III, (Bubba) re-married at the Old Court House Museum.  I was also fortunate to have had two paid vacations thrown in with one to Santa Fe, NM and the other to Fredericksburg, VA, to visit my youngest daughter, Suzi and her family.  This date just so happens to be the day I got married for the first time back in 1962 and also the day I retired from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer in 1995 with 25 years of service.  I hope things will calm down with hunting season just around the corner.  I'm so ready to get in the woods to hog and/or deer hunt.  

My sincere congratulations to Joey and Candice and I'm looking forward to celebrating their wedding day real soon.
