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.

Parker - Little Eagle Eye

Mike Schmid of La Barge, WY, and he son, Parker, went moose hunting and said, "Oh, man, what a morning.  Parker spotted these Moose shortly after daylight. We watched them for a while hoping we could get a direction, instead they walked into some cottonwoods and cedars and bedded down. We spent 2-1/2 hours stalking them. Ended up being two Bulls tending this old girl...we eased our way up to about 80 yards when one of the Bulls made us and stood up. Shortly the other two did the same. They started to walk away and that's when we grunted at them and got them stopped. We got a big cedar tree between us and inched closer and where I could get a rest with the .280 Remington. I got up to a Cottonwood to use as a rest with Parker right on my heels. She was about 90 or so yards out. When she turned broadside we put one in the boiler room. I will never forget this day! 

Congratulations to Mike and his son Parker making memories of a lifetime in our wild outdoors!
