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.

My Photo Published

Marian Love Phillips shot this self-portrait as she stood in the shadows of Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis statues at the Kentucky Monument in the Vicksburg National Military Park.  


This past Sunday in The Vicksburg Post one of my pictures was once again published.  I had taken it on a beautiful Sunday, February 6, 2011, while Bob and I went for a drive through our historical park. The Vicksburg Post will accept for publication photos submitted by readers.  The photo should be current and of interest to the public, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographic skill shown. These are the criteria that will be used in determining which photos will be published.  Submitted photos should be accompanied by complete caption info and include a phone number for the photographer, which will not be published.  Photos may be submitted electronically or by mail.  Photos are published at the top of the Classifieds Ads which normally have four to five pictures sent in by readers and say - Give Us Your Best Shot.  It really makes you feel good to know that your photo was good enough to be published in your hometown paper.

Congrats Marian, that's a great shot. I had not idea there was a Kentucky Monument in Mississippi. It makes sense that Lincoln and Davis would be in the monument together, because were both natives of my home state KY. I'll have to plan on making a stop on my next road trip!
