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.

Bob and I drove up to Fort Hill yesterday afternoon for a scenic look of the Yazoo Diversion Canal, Lake Centennial and of course Louisiana. It was a beautiful - but hot Saturday of 93 degrees! I brought my digital camera to take some pictures but the intense glare of the sun was so bad that I really could not see what I was taking. I did get a few that are worth sharing. The picture above is part of Anderson-Tully Company (ATCO) where Bob had worked as Director of Labor Relations from 1980 until his retirement on disability in 1994. ATCO's home office is in Memphis, TN.
