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.

Photos by Vicksburg Readers

The sun setting last week through the cannon "Widow Blakely" spokes at the Louisiana Circle overlook next to the Mississippi River at Vicksburg. (The Vicksburg Post)

Debra Murphy Forbes was at the home of her parents’, Newell and Althea Murphy, when she spotted this trio of raccoons getting a big drink from the backyard swimming pool.

This picture was taken at Eagle Lake when the rain from Hurricane Ike was coming through. The rain is evaporating before it hits the ground.

A reader commented....This was an absolutely beautiful sight. The sun was hiding behind this one cloud and I had to snap this photo while driving down HWY 80 in Edwards, MS.
Evidently someone loves taking pictures of cows as much as I do. Here, he commented...I love cows, especially their faces, and captured this photo on February 9, in the Farr Road area, between Edwards and Bolton, MS. This bull's for you Rex!
