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.

Happy 19th Birthday, Ethan

Today, June 8th, is my grandson, Michael "Ethan" Kelly's Birthday.  Ethan is stationed at Pope Field in North Carolina.  It's formally known as Pope Air Force Base.  The facility continues to be used by the U. S. Air Force but is now operated by the U. S. Army as part of Fort Bragg, NC.    

I really like this picture of him standing inside the Air Force archway.  He has really grown up so fast and it seems like it was only yesterday that I was taking him hunting with me.  I'm so proud of my grandson serving his country and wishing him a very Happy 19th Birthday!  I love and miss you very much!  Gran Gran
