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.

Hurricane Isaac Is Coming

Isaac Churns in the Gulf
Image Credit: NASA GOES Project

This visible image of Tropical Storm Isaac taken from NASA/NOAA's GOES-13 satellite shows the huge extent of the storm, where the eastern-most clouds lie over the Carolina's and the western most clouds are brushing east Texas.

The image was captured today, August 28, 2012 at 10:25 a.m. EDT before it was announced a Cat. 1 hurricane.  At present Hurricane Isaac is moving currently northwestward toward the mouth of the Mississippi river while flooding from the storms surge and rainfall is expected.

Vicksburg is battening down the hatches today in anticipation of Isaac dumping up to 10 inches of rain on us Wednesday and Thursday according to our paper.  It will start today and continue up to three more days.  

We are also expecting power outages.  I guess I am prepared as much as I can be.  When Katrina came through in 2005 we were without power from 1:00 p.m. on Monday till 7:30 a.m. on Thursday.  It is ironic that another hurricane is coming on the 7th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.  A little bit eerie for me!  If I do not post anymore for the rest-of-the week you will know that my electricity is out.  I hope everyone involved will try to stay safe as possible and the ones not involved, please keep us in your prayers until all of this is over with.
