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.

Miscellaneous Snow Pix

Snow on the Magnolia leaves in the backyard.  It's very pretty with the sun beaming through.

My footprints in the snow!

Truck bumper full of snow!

Went to the cemetery and noticed this one grave with an ornate fence around it.  The inscription reads:  
In memory of
 Dr. Thomas B. Benedict
Assistant Surgeon of C.S.A.
Died in Vicksburg Miss.
 June 1, 1863 Age 52 years
He fell at his Post.  Dying for
a land and cause that he 
loved more than life, and 
he died in faith.
Falling asleep in JESUS.

Flags blowing atop Confederate Soldiers graves!

A beautiful angel's grave site in the melting snow.


Two crows squawking in a dead tree upon leaving.
