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.

My Photo Published

Marian Love Phillips had just finished hunting and, while waiting for her ride, decided to shoot a photo of the night sky over MS Delta.

I was happy to see my recent sunset picture published in our paper, The Vicksburg Post.  It was taken on December 28, 2011, after hunting and seeing two nice bucks and eight does.  We were invited to hunt at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club (Deer Camp Blog) after Christmas and as usual had a wonderful time hunting with the Howell family and their friends.  

The Vicksburg Post has a criteria for accepting photos submitted by their readers. It should be current and of interest to the public, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographic skill shown.  

I'm always humbled by the fact that they like my picture enough to publish it in our hometown paper!
