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.

Picture Published Again, Plus!

Marian Love Phillips was in the historic observation structure at the Vicksburg National Cemetery when she snapped this photo of American flags standing near tombstones.

This is a very first for Bob and I to have our pictures published in The Vicksburg Post at the same time and the very first for Bob.  How cool it that!  Above is my picture and below is his, that was published today in the Classified Section of our hometown paper.  Photos are sent in by readers and if it's worthy of being published it will be in this section.  They specify that photos should be current, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographic skill shown.  It's truly an honor to have someone recognize your photos and to have both our pictures in at the same time, side by side, is really a special Sunday treat!

Bob Phillips was walking his dog near his Vicksburg home when he looked up and saw this sight in the sky.
