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.

Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier

In Arlington Cemetery near the east portico of the Amphitheater, it commemorates the dead of both World Wars, the Korean and Vietnam Wars.  Bodies of unknown Americans from each of these conflicts rest here.  A soldier of the First Battle Group, Third Infantry, guards the tomb day and night.  Dist. by Coffman Publications

I have been to the Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier and is was very awe-inspiring.  I stayed long enough to see the changing of the guards.  If you are ever in this area, it's a must see experience.
