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.

Cam Trail Surprise

Deer hunting enthusiast and TV show host Cody Robbins, from Live2Hunt TV, was out checking his Stealth Cam Trail Camera late one evening and had a nice surprise!  Here's what happened, straight from Cody's Facebook post:

CHECK THIS OUT!  Last night I was working late, checking cams. I was down on one knee changing the setting on my Stealth Cam, when I heard leaves crunching in the distance...There's no moon right now, so when I turned to see what it was, all I could see was black.

The footsteps kept getting closer...and closer...and closer. Crouched against the tree, I sat motionless waiting to see something develop out of the darkness.  By the time I could make out what it as, three objects appeared withing six feet of me!!!  I never moved a muscle, and listened to them chewing and crunching on the feed.  They ate for about a minute before they finally got a whiff of me, and wheeled back into the darkness.

Here's a pic of the big moment.  It was so awesome to be that close in the BLACK DARK!!!
