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.

A Snowy Cannon

This picture was on the front page of our paper yesterday taken by Meredith Spencer.  It is located near the entrance to the Vicksburg National Military Park.  Shown above is one of our visitors centers.  Click here to see what it looked like through the eyes of Marty Kittrell's photos of the park and surrounding area.  He is a very good photographer and I love all of his works.  Enjoy!
