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.

Off to Job Corps

Pictured here with my grandson and wishing him a great future at job corps

My daughter, Kathy with son Carl.

Carl getting ready to leave for Memphis, TN.

My grandson, Carl, who is 19 years old, left this past Tuesday for Benjamin J. Hooks Job Corps Center in Memphis, TN. It's a technical training program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor that helps young people ages 16 through 24 to improve the quality of their lives through career technical and academic training. Carl is really good with computers and is looking towards a career in that field. He's also an avid deer hunter and harvested his first deer, a 5 pt. buck, at my hunting club, Jasper Bottom, in 2003. The family wishes him well with his studies and that he will succeed in following his dreams. Good Luck Carl!

Good for him!

So many young people just don't want to do anything these days.
