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.

Good Luck Slippers!

My Facebook friend, Darion Branham of PA, took his 10 year old daughter hunting last November.  While running out the door to get to the woods, she forgot her boots and had her slippers on.   She shot and killed her very first deer, a nice 6 point buck, and he was so happy and proud for her.  He said, "Don't mind the slippers....we accidentally left her boots back home."  

What a story she will tell about her first deer kill while hunting with her Dad wearing her slippers!

My congrats to her and to her proud Dad for taking the time to teach her to hunt in our great wild outdoors.  Great job Dad!
