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.

Train vs Tornado ~ Fascinating!

Here is something you do not see too often.  This video came from a fellow who works for the RR as a train dispatcher. 

Every once in a while he sends a cool video involving trains. This is one of them. 

Trains nowadays mount cameras in their cabs, facing forward and backward, the same way police do.

This video is a rear view camera. This is video of a train that ran through a tornado..

First there is the normal rear view from the last of three engines, with the trees looking normal.

Then you begin to see rain, and then, halfway through the video the trees begin to sway violently . . . and then the "fun" begins.

That was a very interesting recording of a weather event. The power of a tornado is awe inspiring and so destructive at the same time.
