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.

Picture Published Again!

Marian Love Phillips took this photo of a "river rat" at Louisiana Circle overlook above Riverfront Park and the Mississippi River.

Back in February, I drove by the Louisiana Circle overlook to see if there was any river traffic and nothing was in view.  I suddenly saw something in a tree that caught my eye and zoomed in and took this picture of a squirrel that I called a "river rat." Every time I have a picture published in the paper I am most humbled and thankful.  The picture was a nice size in order to view the squirrel sitting on a limb with the bend of the river in the background.  Photos by readers are placed in the classified section and called, Give Us Your Best Shot! The photos have to be current and of interest to the public, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographic skill shown.  The photos also have to be accompanied by a compete caption information.
