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.

Ornate Wrought Iron Fences







Sunday afternoon Bob and I drove to Cedar Hill Cemetery and went in the entrance off of Lover's Lane. I wanted to take some pictures of the beautiful old tombstones there and notice how pretty the patterns were on the fences around the old family plots. Here are a few that I took that I thought were really unique. Some of these date back to the early 1800's.

These wrought iron fences are interesting. I have been wondering how these fences can be repaired. My mother's family has a very old small family cemetery with fences like these which are probably 150 years old in North Carolina. They were imported from overseas somewhere way back when. Some sections are corroding. The whole thing is not anchored either to prevent theft.

I may visit Cedar Hill and look around and maybe I can come up with some ideas on what to do and visit with some old friends there.

Many of the people I have known in Vicksburg are buried in Cedar Hill cemetery. They were elderly people I used to visit on Sunday's, bringing communion from St. Michael's. Plus I met several nuns at the hospital chapel who have now passed on and are laid to rest out there. I suspect it is where I will end up. That would be okay with me.

Thanks for coming by Charles...

I will most likely at some point go back and take more pictures. It's quiet and peaceful for sure!

The wrought irons are indeed variants into some usual furniture or products carved or made. Without it, a thing is hard to establish its durability.
