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.

Leaving Brown's Point Hunting Club

An abandon airstrip that would bring the hunters in for the big hunt.


This camp was here when we hunted on Kings Point Island.

New buildings that have been erected.  

This camp is new and is down from Riverland heading out.  Between the two hunting camps right on the road, I just happened to look down a road going into the woods when I saw a big rack buck standing in the middle of the road.  Bob was looking straight ahead.  I put on breaks and backed up but it was long gone.

Coming to get us...

Hope we will be able to come back soon to visit our old hunting buddies.

Leaving Kings Point Island...

In view as you get on the main (Port of Vicksburg) road, is a beautiful monument you can see which is located in the Vicksburg National Military Park.

Part of the lumber yard of Anderson-Tully Lumber Company (ATCO) where Bob was Director of Labor Relations/Personnel Manager for 15 years.  The End
