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.

Rain, Blue Skies, Wrecks and Traffic Jams

The clouds finally broke apart so the sun could shine over downtown Vicksburg. This picture was taken from the top of the Old Court House Museum. We have had rain here for weeks, but the clear skies and cool temps are on the menu at least into late next week. So far this month we have received 9.07 inches of rain. That is a lot of rain!

We have had numerous wrecks...here is one shown here. This is I-20 west bound and Bob and I saw this wreck while traveling the frontage road to the left going east. A pier has shifted on the I-20 overpass from MS to LA and workers are working on the bridge which is causing an everyday backup of cars and trucks.

Here is a night picture that I took of I-20 Friday night. It's a little blurry but you can still see how two lanes of traffic are moving slowly and for miles. What a mess! It will be like this for another week while they finish work on the Mississippi River bridge.
