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 Buddies @ Famous Christmas Place Hunting Club

Stewart Allen, Mark, Rex Howell, Burney Howell, myself and Paul Howell.  Michael Howell took our picture and missing was Tent Howell who left earlier because our Sunday morning hunt was rained out.

I had two great hunts even though Rex tried so hard to call up a big buck or a doe for me to shoot.  Our first hunt was not far from the Sneaky Stand at a creek bed that was overflowing from a early stormy Saturday morning. It was so nice and peaceful with the flowing waters.. 

Saturday afternoon hunt was near the Beehive Stand at the lake...

 ...but again no luck and Rex had used his new caller on both hunts.

Last weekend Rex called up a very nice 180 lb. buck with his new grunt caller that he got for Christmas using his .270 in uncharted waters.

Mark got a 138lb. doe Friday evening and was the only deer killed.  It was nice of him to offer me a hind quarter to bring home from his deer.  It was much appreciated  Congratulations Mark!

Nothing like a camp fire after a successful hunt from Mark!

A special thanks to my hunting and blogging friend, Rex of Deer Camp Blog, for inviting me up to hunt at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club on the edge of the MS Delta.  It is a great place to hunt and once again to see my hunting buddies and spend good times together while making memories that will last a lifetime.  

While on my way home I usually stop by the Yazoo Interchange to take pictures of the swamp.  Since it was still raining, I just stayed in my truck, zoomed in and got some pix.
