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.

KS Turkey vs MS Charlie

My BEST-EST girlfriend's husband, Charlie, Sr., got this very nice turkey back in May while visiting family and turkey hunting.  He harvested the bird in Ellsworth County, KS about 90 minutes northwest of Wichita. Charlie commented that there are a lot of turkeys in KS and this MS turkey had to go and check them out!  

Above is Charlie with their son Kirk, who is also my Godchild, as his guide for getting the bird in close. They located the bird and another before daylight and worked him until 8:15. Kirk got him to cross the dry creek bed behind them for the shot.  My congrats to Charlie for a fine bird and Kirk for helping his Dad in our great wild and wonderful outdoors! Awesome!
