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.

Sleepy Old Town With Old Stores


Here are a few pictures I took on our way to Learned, MS last weekend to visit my family.  We past by this old church called, Bethesda Presbyterian Church (PCA), which was founded in 1826 before the Civil War and the Siege of Vicksburg.  I'm sure the handicap ramp was not there at the time.  A piece of past history still alive with a cemetery in front of the church that I would like to walk through one day. 

It sits sideways from the road as you are passing by.

Old store in Learned, MS that recently got a new porch.

Another store that looks like it got a new paint job...

...with an old chair on the porch.




Doors closed up tight on Sunday.

Come and sit a spell.

Really liked this store with the old rocking chairs and the old barrel.


Worn with time.

His and Hers rocking chair. 

Looks like the original floor and footings to hold the building up off the ground.
