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.

Sunday's Hunt

My Sunday hunt started around 3:00 and I got under a deer stand that was made around three trees.  It was located on the left side of the big ridge.  Saturday's hunt was on the right side of the ridge.  At the bottom of the ridge is Pecos Bayou where the deer walk and use as a highway.  Actually, I was facing the cave where I was told a bear lives.  Once again, I enjoyed being in the woods and my hunt.  While putting my hunting stuff away to leave, I was told that they had encountered the bear earlier while looking for a deer that was shot that morning.  It just happened to be on the right side where I was hunting the day before. They quickly gave up looking for the deer after the bear roared at them.  That was pretty scary to hear and I'm glad I have another place to hunt next weekend in our great wild outdoors!  That's too close for me!

My  trusty .270! 

Zoomed in to get a picture of the bear cave.

This leaf caught my eye with the sun shinning on it.  

While standing up taking a break something red caught my eye.  At first I thought it was a red cardinal but after looking through my binoculars saw it was an abandoned car.
