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.

Deer Season In Mississippi

It's too bad that I have been shot out this deer season for the first time in 28 years.  I simply love the sport!  I enjoy getting out in nature and watching the deer and whatever else crosses my path...a bobcat one time. You may see deer and you may not - but just being in the woods is enough for me.  I love shooting them with my camera as well. Hopefully, soon I can get in the woods and get behind a ground blind and take some pictures.  

It will take me awhile to recover from my rt. rotator cuff surgery and knowing that my daughter, Kathy, is in our great outdoors hunting today brings me great joy.  I have four daughters and I'm so glad that one of them wanted to take up the sport.  She has already harvested several deer and she said...since Mama can't get to the woods and get the meat, I will.  Wishing her GOODHUNTING!
