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.

Maloney Circle



It was a beautiful Sunday here in Vicksburg and we decided to take a short drive (north and south loop) through our National Military Park.  As we were exiting the park we drove pass Maloney Circle and I decided to check it out.  I have lived here all my life and have drove pass this place a million times but never stopped to see what was beyond the old historical bridge.  As I walked over the bridge, I took a picture of the Kansas City Rail Road tracks beneath the bridge.  Here are some pictures I took of my short walk across the bridge to Maloney Circle.
