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.

Pansy Picture Published


I'm always humbled by the fact that my pictures are good enough to be published in our paper, The Vicksburg Post.  I had sent this particular one in a month ago and forgot about it and opened the paper yesterday morning and saw it.  The caption under the pictures said - Marian Love Phillips snapped this close photo of a pansy as it bloomed openly in the waning days of cool weather in Vicksburg. 

On Facebook I belong to a group called, The Southern Artist Group and Glenn Fought, a "self taught" artist and photographer, asked us to go within 200 ft of our home and take a picture.  This was in my next door neighbor's flower box that hangs on their white picket fence.  I received some good feedback on it and decided to enter it in our paper.

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.  Submitted photos should be accompanied by complete caption information and include a phone number for the photographer.  It should be submitted electronically or in person at the Post Plaza or by mail.
