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.

Second Hunt @ Deer Camp

My afternoon hunt was at the Taj-Mahal deer stand in a huge opened field.  I have hunted off of this stand before and seen deer so early in the morning that I could barely make them out.

As seen in front of the stand and to the right and left was a very huge cotton field.   

This is where I saw about 12 hogs in the green next to the woods appear at 100 yards on back side of stand.  I noticed 3 large hogs and the rest were smaller ones.  I took aim with my .270 and hit the one that stood out, which was a black hog facing me and hit her right in the head and she dropped.  After I shot, they all scattered and was able to pull off another shot and hit a smaller pig and it dropped.  This was about 5:10 in the afternoon and nothing else came out.  

I zoomed in with my camera and got a picture of the black sow that I shot before it got dark.  

Picture of the little hog I shot back at camp at the skinning pole.
