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.

In Memory of General Custer

This is General Custer, who was registered and also called, "Gen Gen" a.k.a., "Barney". It was my brother's dog for 17 years and he past away this week. He was a good dog and companion for my brother (Buster) who now lives alone. I know his heart breaks for his best friend. The sad part about it is that he cannot get another dog because of a new policy on animals that is now enforced where he lives at his apartment complex. Barney would go to work with my brother every day sitting on piles of newspapers. He is an independent carrier for The Vicksburg Post and Barney enjoyed riding with his master delivering papers. He called Barney his paperweight! When I would go and visit my brother I would play with Barney by sweaking and throwing his stuffed dog toys and he would run and fetch them and bring them back to me. He had a mountain of these toys and would lay up in the middle of them like he was protecting them. He was buried with some of his favorite toys that he loved to play with. I will miss him also.

I'm very sorry to hear about your brother's loss. Pets become such a part of our lives, and it is really hard to lose such an honest and devoted friend.
