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.

Vicksburg's 25th Riverfest


Friday and Saturday in downtown Vicksburg will be the 25th Annual Riverfest with entertainment, food an arts/crafts show and a flea market.

Easton Corbin will be the main entertainer tomorrow night.  He is known for his traditional country sound and is the most successful new artist in country music in the last year.  He is the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two consecutive singles reach No. 1 - "A Little More Country Than That" and "Roll With It."  He won all of the Breakthrough Artist awards in December at the American Country Awards - Artist of the Year.  Billboard named him as the Top New Country Artist of 2010.  "I can't Love You Back" is his current single.

Bob and I will be at the Old Court House Flea Market on Saturday selling Bob's copper trees and his paintings.  It is forecast to rain but hopefully we can make it through without a downpour.  Below is a picture of one of his copper trees and one of many paintings.  You can view more on his blog at:
Two Dogs Tall 

After the flea market I will be going to my Alma Mater's (SFXA-SAHS) Alumni Banquet at the B'nai B'nai Literary Association Building (B B Club) joining some of my classmates who will be attending from town and out-of-town.  It will make for a long day but looking forward to a fun weekend.

Thanks CDGardens...I hope it does not rain on our parade Sat. We will be under cover but it's better when it's a pretty day. Will let Bob know what you said about his tree and painting. Glad you are enjoying your paintings! He got a kick out of you wanting them. :)
