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.

Hunting Near A Swamp

One day while walking to my deer stand to do an afternoon hunt, I stopped to take this picture at Jasper Bottom Hunting Club in Claiborne County, MS.  This camp is where I harvested my very first deer, a 6 point buck, near the Big Back River.  So many good memories were made at this camp and I had to leave a few years ago because of the dues going up.  I harvested many a deer during my 25 years there.  I'm lucky now to have friends that invite me to hunt on their land and hope to keep hunting for the next 10 to 15 years in our great wild outdoors!
