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.

Visiting the Kentucky Monument

Yesterday, was a beautiful day in Vicksburg and walkers and runners were out in droves in our Vicksburg National Military Park.  Bob and I decided to get some ice cream and go for a short drive through the park.  One of the stops was at the south loop where I got out and took some pictures at the Kentucky Monument.  Since the last time that I visited this particular monument it has been upgraded with a new parking space and a nice walkway.  I was surprised that it was so soft to walk on and never seen a walkway like this before.  The Kentucky Monument depicts life size sculptures of Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis.  I hope you enjoy the snapshots that I took. To be continued...

     You had to walk approximately 100 yards or more to get to the monument.

Sun was so bright that I took this picture from the backside.
