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.

Britny's First Hog Kill

My Facebook friend,Toby Benoit, called his buddy, that his friend Britny Miller was all sighted in with an old Winchester 30-30, but didn't have a thing to hunt. So he told him to bring her up to his place in Raleigh, Florida to see if they could get a hog in front of her.

They saw six altogether when this fat young boar came in and she wanted him! Toby was proud of her restraint as she waited a long time for him to step right and offer her a broadside shot. She let that old rifle bark and that boar dropped in his tracks; perfect shot placement and the celebrating began! Her adrenaline was in overdrive and never seen her more excited!

Toby was so proud of her hunt and so honored to have been a part of her first successful hunt and even further honored to be the one to "blood" her on her first big game kill!

According to Toby, one of the greatest honors, is to "blood" a new hunter and welcome them into the brotherhood.  A tradition that reaches back through the centuries and stems from the Native American tradition of showing respect to the spirit of the animal and asking its blessing upon all of the new hunter's future hunts.

My congrats to Britny in our great wild and awesome outdoors!  What a great day for both of them!
