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.

A Sunday Sunset



This bird really went out on a limb to watch the sunset!



I am so blessed to live in a city high on the bluffs of the Mississippi River to see some beautiful sunsets. I had just been to Wally World to pick up a few things and decided I would just go and sit in our truck and watch the sun go down at the Louisiana Circle at Vicksburg. It had been raining here for the last few days and usually after a rain you can see some pretty sunsets setting over our neighboring State of Louisiana. Their were several cars already parked waiting to see the sun go down as I was with my camera in hand. Hope you all enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. PS: The mighty Mississippi is on the rise again with considerable flooding beginning north and south of town.

It is great to have such beautiful sunsets after having to put up with rain.(which is a necessary part of life once in awhile) ;)

Marian,
Great sunset pictures! That's the thing I miss the most by living in town. We have a large ridge to the west of us and we never get to see the sunset.
All the best,
