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.

Old Court House Scenes

Picture I took of the Irises near the handicap ramp to the Old Court House Museum.

Yesterday, Bob wanted to go by the Old Court House Museum to check and see if his copper trees were selling.  He makes them as a hobby and not only does he have them at the museum but also placed in different locations around town and also sells them on eBay.  While he was inside, I walked around the grounds and took some pictures.  It's an old historical museum that was standing during the Civil War/Seige of Vicksburg in 1863.  If you are ever in Vicksburg, it is a must see!  The museum is standing on a whole city block.  Here are a few pictures that I took that you may enjoy looking at.

There are four of these round buildings at each corner of the lot.  On the front lawn of the Old Court House they are used for restrooms for the public.  Above is the ladies restroom.

Above is the mens restroom and in the background to the left is the Vicksburg City Jail.

Worn steps that have been patched at the front portico.

A beautiful water fountain in memory of Eloise Gaugh Freeman (1917-2005).

Come To The Garden

Original iron shutters on all the windows.

On the backside of the Old Court House is a new cage that has been recently built for an injured Eagle.  More than enough funds were raised to care for it and will be released back into the wild when it's tail feathers have grown back.

How pretty the Iris is in flower. Everything is so lush and green there in Vicksburg...That is wonderful that they are able to rehab the injured Eagle right behind the courthouse and get him back out into the wild.

The picture turned out so good that I made it my background on my computer. Did you read the story of the injured Eagle? It is a real good story...Thanks for coming by CDGardens! :)
