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.

First Hunt @ Deer Camp

I was so happy to be invited up to the Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club by my mentor/friend, Rex Howell, of Deer Camp Blog last Friday afternoon.  Got to camp around 8:00 pm on the edge of the MS Delta and was so good to see everyone again and to visit. It has been awhile since I have been due to recovering from shoulder surgery which knocked me out for a whole hunting season.  My first hunt was planned at the Sneaky Stand not far from camp and below are some pictures I took while sitting behind a ground blind to deer/hog hunt.

A beautiful crescent moon on a very cold morning for my first hunt.

Looking down a long frosty field.

To the right of the field.

Behind me was the main road.

Looking up while sitting under the deer stand.  The step rungs were to far apart for me to climb up.

Sneaky Stand from the road as I finished my hunt.

Walking back to camp and crossing a new bridge that was built last year.

Wouldn't you know I would have two does and a small fawn to jumped out in front of me as I was returning to camp.
