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.

Historical Gift Shop

Yesterday, Bob and I took off to town to go by Vicksburg's Old Court House Museum to check out their gift shop.  I grab my camera to take along with me because it is such a beautiful and historical building and there is always a picture to be taken.  Above is one of twenty ornate 30 foot ionic columns that flank this historical building.

The entrance to the building with the American and Confederate flags flying in the breeze.

This cat is a "new" resident of the Old Court House.  Her name is Maggie and was adopted from the Vicksburg-Warren Humane Society.  This is undoubtly the fattest cat I have ever seen and was very friendly.

We left with two special gifts for our bestest and deer friend, Rex, over at Deer Camp Blog!  We are looking forward to our next visit in June with Denise, his family and friends at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club.
