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.

Finally Made The Paper!


I was so happy to see my brother-in-law's picture finally making our Sunday's paper, The Vicksburg Post.  He had posted it on his Facebook page and told him he should send it to the Post and they may published it and they did.  Chris is retried from the Corps of Engineers, but works part time and also has his own business called, Ables Electronic Technology, Inc.  He was down by the Mississippi River doing some work when he took a couple of pictures of the bridges one foggy morning.  This was his first picture to enter and to be published. Now, I have some family competition!

He had sent in both pictures but the The Vicksburg Post chose the one above to publish.

Congratulations to your cousin for the publication of his picture!

That foggy experience would have added to the mystery of navigating the flood waters on the Mississippi.

He's my brother-in-law and told him to submit it because it was a beautiful picture...so glad he did. My sister called and woke me up Sunday morning to tell me about it and how famous he is now. I could have shot her...anyway, I love the fog also. He did say that he missed another great shot when all he could see was the top of a pilot house of a towboat mid-way between the bridges. He was working and did not have time to take the picture...even tho he missed that shot...these are good shots. Thanks for your visit and the congrats. Will let him know CDGardens! :)
