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.
This past Saturday we went down to the Riverfront park and enjoyed the muddy Mississippi River flowing to it's destination, the Gulf of Mexico. The temperature had dropped down to 79 degrees and was nice and breezy. The park is located below the Louisiana Circle that I have recently posted about. It has picnic tables/pavilions with covers, charcoal grills, walking paths, restrooms and a very nice playground area for the kids.
Looking south down river towards the bridges.
Bob enjoying the scenery and hoping for a barge to come around the bend. We saw no river traffic except for a small boat coming out the Yazoo Diversion Canal to the right headed up the MS River.
