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.

Incredible Clouds over Mt. Rainier

I had these pictures sent to me by a cousin in Louisiana and she said that these clouds are called, "lenticular clouds", which are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes. They're caused when the air flow is just right so when it flows over Mt. Rainier, the air gets pushed upward where it cools and condenses into clouds. Depending on how smooth the flow is, you can get some amazing clouds formations as shown here. It's usually a sign of rain within 24 hours because typically the moist flow that precedes a storm around Tacoma/Seattle area are the perfect set up for these clouds. I have been to Seattle and flown over Mt. Rainier and it was an awesome site to behold! I had attended an international convention there in July 1995 and you could not see the mountain for several days. I was told that when you finally did see it, the natives would always say, "The Mountain's Out"!

Hi, Marian ...

Those are truly awesome clouds ... and you're right, I don't think we'll ever see any like that around Vicksburg.

Thank you for the sweet note you posted on my Facebook. I appreciate your kind words about my photography.

Take care ...

Janie
