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.

It Happened Again!

The picture of my squirrel that shows up every morning while on my computer was published in The Vicksburg Post today.  

I sent it in last Monday and was happy to hear Bob say...you did it again!!!  

I posted about the squirrel last Friday week. Sometimes the paper may wait a month or two before publishing something you send in.  All and all, seven pictures were posted in the Classified Section of our Sunday's paper.  Showing in the section were two turtles, two caterpillars, a baby oriole and a humming sitting on a man's hand. They asked readers to give their best shot.  Also, photos should be current and of interest to the public, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographic skill shown.  You have to also summit a caption for your picture.  

Under my picture it read, Marian Love Phillips said this squirrel friend shows up nearly every day as she sits just inside the window.  Of course, I'm on my computer blogging away and it's so nice to not have to get up and go outside to photograph something.  

I will wait a couple of weeks and send in a picture of Allie Cat with her mouth wide open that I posted the other day sitting exactly where the squirrel was.  It may or may not go in the paper but you never know unless you try.  Not all of my pictures have been published but I'm so happy for the ones that have been.
