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.

Fun All Around

Denise and Rex (red cap) and Bob (with walking stick) far right checking out the flea market.

I love to collect crosses.

What happens at the River stays at the River!

Fun for the kids!

Denise, myself, Josh (our Baton Rouge new found friend), Bob and Rex enjoying a cold beer on tap at Monsour's at The Biscuit Company.

Along with our annual Bluz Cruz canoe/kayak race across the MS River, Riverfest, arts and crafts festival downtown, we also had the YMCA's Men's Pancake Breakfast, two walks for medical research and support, the Alcorn State University Jazz Festival and the Vicksburg Red Carpet Classic auto show.  The weather was perfect for all the festivities.  We were so excited to have our dear friends in from Water Valley, Rex and Denise, to join us for a fun all around weekend.  We ate sugar covered cakes, homemade chocolate fudge, fried green tomatos, shrimp at Duff's, crawfish and more crawfish with all the trimmings at Tony's Restaurant & Lounge and topped it all off with a cold draft beer.  Good times!
