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.

Family Bonding

Jerry Bourne, and his 4-year-old son Mason pose with this 100-pound doe they killed over the weekend in Warren County in Vicksburg, MS. A great time for family bonding and sending my congrats to both!

I'm very fortunate, out of four daughters, that my daughter, Kathleen (Kathy) is a hunter. We have had many hunts together and made great memories.
Kathleen (Kathy) Love Day at Homewood Hunting Club in Claiborne County, MS.

I have taken my grandson, Kathy's son, Carl, hunting with me as well and he got his very first buck, a 5-pt.  I did not have a youth gun for him to shoot, only my .270.  But that little guy shot it coming over a levee.  It was the most exciting day of my life besides my daughter getting her first deer. I am grateful that I was introduced to hunting at the age of 45 and carrying on my hunting experiences with my daughter and grandson.

I now have an 8-year-old Great Grandson, Ian, who received a youth .243 for his birthday recently and he is looking forward to getting his first deer this season with his Dad.  Maybe one day we can hunt together and carry on the tradition of hunting in our great wild outdoors with family!  

Ian is so proud of his 8th birthday present from his Mom and Dad.
