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.

We Have Snow!

Yesterday, a Cardinal knows that something is up watching the sleet..

Side view from the living room window this morning.

We received about an inch of snow with temps still in the low 20's.  

View from next door.

A snowy Magnolia tree at the end of our driveway.

Where oh where did I put my nuts?

Here it is!

Thanks for sharing your snow with us. I imagine it won't last very long.New fallen snow is pretty but I am sure you will be glad when it disappears.

It looks like we will lose the snow we have starting tomorrow. Thank goodness!

You are welcome CDGardens...the northern part of Mississippi got a lot more than we did but thankful for what we did get. It's really pretty but is melting fast. Suppose to get up to 70 degrees by Sunday. Crazy weather for sure! Always happy to see you drop in to visit me! :)

North MS got a good bit of snow Bill and it's been a long time since we got that much snow here in Vicksburg. I'm with you, ready for Spring "NOW"...wish I could go fishing. I won a new "pink" reel and rod on a blog (The Hunter's Wife) a couple years ago and have yet get it wet! My husband and I used to fish when we were dating but after we got married did little fishing. Now he has health issues. I would like to go fishing at the deer camp in the Delta @ Deer Camp Blog. Rex and his family have a 40 acre lake and a pontoon boat. I've been in it a few years back but never to fish. Hopefully, this will be the year! Thanks for dropping by and hope you catch a lot of crappie this weekend! Good Luck! :)
