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.

Tal's Plains Game/Bird Mounts - Part 3

 Beautiful Zebra rug from Africa!

This is not a mount but a favorite piece of mine, said Tal.  It's an exact bronze replica of a light deadgrass Chesapeake - the only breed of retriever I have ever owned done by Burl Jones.  He did a limited number of these coffee tables with black labs and this was the only chessie he had done.  I sent him pictures and he mastered him down to the brown stripe on his nose.

I want to personally thank Tal Goldsby, my Facebook friend, for letting me show off his plains game/bird mounts, zebra rug and his beautiful sculptured coffee table above.  He must be very proud of his accomplishments and knowing that he can enjoy them and the good memories of being in our great wild outdoors
