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.

Animals & Reptiles Caught-Up In The Flooding



In Sunday's Vicksburg Post classified ads, Byron Flowers, had sent in several pictures that he took while traveling on the Mississippi River Mainline Levee near Halpino Lake.  He saw herds of deer crossing the levee, obviously running from the rising water.  He said about 500 deer passed that afternoon.  In the bottom photo an alligator appears to be taking a break from the floodwaters north of town.  

My daughter, Kathy, who works at Riverwalk Casino said that a Security Supervisor witness deer swimming across the MS River.
