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.

Photos By Vicksburg Readers!

Looking much like a football player hiding the pigskin in front of a crowd, this squirrel posed for Marian Love Phillips in Vicksburg on her porch in front of a pot of flowers.

This is a picture I took of my friendly squirrel on our back porch in October and was published in The Vicksburg Post today!  You can read all about this cute rodent on my post of October 24, 2011.  I had emailed it to the post on November 2, and it's just now being published. Sometimes they will hold a picture for a few weeks, but by then I have usually forgotten that I have sent one in. It was a nice surprise to open up the paper this morning to see it.  As you can see below it was a large picture published on the front page of the Classified Section of our paper and took up more than half the page.

GIVE US YOUR BEST SHOT!  The Vicksburg Post will accept for publication photos submitted by readers.  The photos should be current and of interest to the public, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographic skill shown.  These are the criteria that will be used in determining which photos will be published. Submitted photos should be accompanied by complete caption information and include a phone number for the photographer, which will not be published.  Photos my be submitted electronically at, in person at Post Plaza or my mail to The Vicksburg Post. News photos, P.O. Box 821668, Vicksburg, MS  39182

Joseph Jackson of Vicksburg said this bird appeared to be enjoying the fall weather as it perched on a gutter at his home.

Martha Williams said she thought the full moon looked prettier than usual when shot through trees.

KKMcCarley of Vicksburg said this "awesome" mushroom was "too cool" to pass up with her camera.

Pam Rushing of Vicksburg  said she felt a deer was leaving her a special message of thank-you by leaving a heart-shaped footprint for allowing a constant buffet on her lawn.

Thanks DeanO and Lindsjo taxar! I don't think I'm famous in Vicksburg or all over the map but it's a nice thought. :) My pictures have been in the paper several times and enjoy sharing them with the public. It's nice that our local paper gives us that opportunity to do so. Thanks for your visit...I enjoyed your comments and y'all made me laugh! :)
