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.

Photos From Louisiana Circle

The Widow Blakely aimed at the bridges.

A small boat speeding down the MS River.

This sign has been marred by vandalism.  Someone wrote Ryan in upper right hand of plaque and Michael down the left side.  You can go to prison for defacing a plaque or monument in our park.  Park Rangers do patrol the area.   

The Widow Blakely - note Kudzu and some trash at the base of the wheel.

View from atop the knoll looking at the bend in the MS River at Vicksburg with the Riverfront Park below.

Looking south towards the two bridges at the Louisiana Circle.

My favorite spot to watch the sunset and the MS River traffic.  Photos were taken over the weekend.
