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 Blogging @ Oil-Electric.com

During the Great Flood of 2011 here in Vicksburg, I was contacted back in May by Robert McDonald of Port Townsend, Washington, who wanted to use my photo showing the old train depot station.  I gave him permission and he was just as upset as I was of our 1906 historic Yazoo & Mississippi Valley Railroad Station going underwater and why it was not protected. The depot museum was being renovated at the time with a 1.6 million dollar grant before the floods came.  It was a blessing in disguise that the artifacts were stored in another location.  I wanted to give Robert a shout-out since he gave me one when he posted about the Depot on May 23.  Check out his blog at www.oil-electric.com because it is very interesting while detailing rails to waterways to boats, etc.
