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.

Let The Good Times Roll

According to The Vicksburg Post today our Latin Carnivale brought a sizzle to an otherwise chilly Saturday afternoon in downtown Vicksburg as thousands flocked to catch beads and baubles thrown fom passing floats in the 9th Annual Mardi Gras parade.  Sponsored by Vicksburg Main Street Program, the parade featuring a Latin theme drew nearly 4,000 people who lined Washington Street from Belmont to Jackson streets.  Revelers braved 35-degree temps and cloudy skies to see a row of floats decked in purple, green and yellow that began rolling at 2:00 p.m.  Organizers said turnout was not exactly what they had hoped for and cited the cold weather and the remnants of a rare snowstorm that dumped 6.5 inches of the white stuff on Vickburg on Friday.  Everybody had a good time and was a good turnout regardless. 

On the way to the parade we passed by this snowman that was in a Mardi Gras mood!
