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.

Rail Road Track Sunbather

This was in The Vicksburg Post mid-week of an alligator sunbathing next to railroad tracks along North Washington Street near the National Cemetery.  With the high river waters, the reptiles can be spotted easily now.  ~Photo taken by David Jackson

Oh My - but I suppose he can have that side of the tracks!

Marian Love Phillips said...

Yup! I would let him have that side also DeanO! Should open the roads by next week. Taking soil samples North and South of town to see if the roads are OK since the flooding. No telling how many critters will be roaming the roads now with the MS River going down! I have deer alerts on my truck...now I need to get some alligator alerts! :)

Alligators...goodness! Did you happen to see any of those water snakes slithering past since the water was high?

Marian Love Phillips said...

No, I did not CDGardens...actually high water areas were policed and you could not get in.
