My Shadow on a Tree
This picture of me with my shadow on a tree was most likely taken back in 1986-87 hunting season. I had just started hunting and this was an evening shot. My stand was near the Big Black River and as the sun was setting I noticed my shadow on a tree near me and took this picture. I now use it as a logo on my blog called, Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc. It is amazing that you can take one picture and get so many compliments on it throughout the years. I like it because it's different and a reminder of my early hunting days. I was in my mid-forties at the time and enjoying hunts at Jasper Bottom Hunting Club in Claiborne County, Mississippi. Two years ago I had to pull out of my hunting club after 25 years because the fees had gone up. I really miss hunting there and it's sad that I don't have a deer camp to call my very own anymore. It is a blessing that my husband and I get invited by friends and family to hunt at their camp or on their land. I'm wishing all hunters in our great wild outdoors a very successful 2011-2012 hunting season. Be safe!
