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.

In Memory of My Dad on Father's Day

I love this picture of me taken with my Dad in November 1986 and unfortunately he died the following November. This was my very first deer that I shot, a 6 point buck, on opening day after a big thunderstorm.  After taking pictures we loaded my deer at his camp, Jasper Bottom Hunting Club, in Claiborne County and went by my sister's home where my Dad was recuperating from being in the hospital, to show him my deer.  He was so excited for me and he even thanked my husband-to-be, Bob Phillips, for teaching me how to hunt. I love and miss you dearly Dad!
