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.

104 Year Old Movie

Steve, a friend of mine, sent me this cool 104 year old movie yesterday of San Francisco taken four days before the Apirl 1906 earthquake.

This film was "lost" for many years. It was supposedly the first 35 mm film ever? It was taken by camera mounted on the front of a cable car.

The number of automobiles is staggering for 1906. Absolutely amazing!

The clock tower straight ahead at the end of Market Street at the Embarcadero wharf is still there.

Click here to watch this 7 minute movie that will take you back in time and hope you enjoy watching!  (This film was shipped by train the next day to New York for processing)

(I'm also wondering...how many "street cleaning" people were employed to pick up after the horses.  Talk about going green!)

That is a very neat movie. It seemed like the pedestrians, cars , cable cars and horses were very busy. ;)

Yes, it is very neat CDGardens...I really enjoyed watching it and also sad to know that all of those people are not with us today. Wonder how many survived the earthquake and how many died?
