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.

Kareen's Wild Boar

My Facebook friend, Kareen Beinhauer, of Alpine, TX, was out at 11:45 p.m. trying to get a wild boar. She was just about to give up on anything coming when a boar showed up at 3:04 a.m.  She didn't even give him a chance to eat, and when she shot him, she could see him hunker up and run down into the dry creek. She saw a blood trail going down to a creek but waited until daytime as it was so bushy. Her husband, Roy, actually found the blood trail at the creek and they followed it to the boar.  It was a lot bigger than she had thought. She said, "It may not look like it to some people but we estimated it to weighed around 240 to 260 pounds."  It made her weekend!  My congrats to Kareen on getting her wild boar in our great outdoors!

One ugly nasty boar!
