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 Vicksburg!

It started snowing here in Vicksburg around 9:00 last night and snowed all night long and it's still snowing.  Our power did go off this morning for about an hour but came back on.  Here are a few pictures I took off our front and back porches.  All the schools are closed and basically everything in town is closed down.  The snow is suppose to stop between noon and 2:00.   A Mardi Gras Parade is scheduled for tomorrow at 2:00 but don't know if it will be cancelled or not.  As the snow falls off the huge oak tree hanging over our house, you can feel the house shake...just so it's snow and not a big limb. 

Our truck covered in snow.

Looks like a heavy wet snow at your place. Hope it doesn't last very long and everyone can say "My that was pretty". "Glad it didn't stay long." ;)
