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.

Caught By Train

As we headed to the overlook yesterday coming from town we saw at the top of the hill that a train was passing by.  As I got closer noticed two birds sitting on a sign like they were also waiting for the train to go by.  It must have been a few minutes or so. Smart birds obeying the rules!    

Waiting...

...and waiting

...and waiting!  Finally, train gone, birds gone!

We just missed a big barge as he headed north after making a turn in the bend. Actually, while waiting for the train to go by we could see the pilot getting ready to execute his wide turn.

Funny little birds! Did you notice how much the Kudzu covered tree and the high clouds had similar shapes? Did you get rain from those clouds?

You would think the noise of the train would scared them but must be used to it. You are right...it does look similar in shapes...Cool! Did not get much rain out of it but getting some much needed rain today. It just comes and goes in spurts! Thanks for coming by CDGardens! :)
