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.

Holly Day Fun!

Bob and I were vendors at the 3rd Annual Holy Days Arts & Crafts Show yesterday at the Southern Cultural Heritage Foundation.  This was our first time to be a part of it to sell Bob's Copper Trees at the event.  We did not do as well as we had anticipated but all and all if was fun to see and visit with friends and enjoy the atmosphere.  The arts and crafts show was located in the auditorium and where I went to school in one city block for 12 years.  Everytime I go in the buildings it always brings back a flood of good memories.  At one time our church was in this auditorium after the tornado hit old St. Paul's Catholic Church on December 5, 1953 and had to be demolished.  The F4 tornado tore through Vicksburg killing 38 people, injured 270, and caused $25 million damage.  Also, part of the movie, O Brother, Where Art Thou?" was also filmed in the auditorium.  It was a very big production to have this movie made here in Vicksburg.  Also, we had entertainment on stage the entire time the event took place from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  Goldie's Bar-B-Que Express also served in the auditorium.
