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.

Happy Independence Day!

I took this picture on July 4, 2010 at the Old Court House Museum as I was leaving towards the end of the fireworks display in the Yazoo Canal.  If it's not too hot this evening and if Bob feels up to it, we may try to go and watch the fireworks again.  

Our city surrendered on this date back in 1863 which ended the Siege of Vicksburg in the American Civil War.  The  Fourth of July was never celebrated here until World War II, because of the surrender of the city on July 4.
