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.

Kentucky Monument @ Vicksburg National Military Park

Karen, my step-daughter and Ron, my step-son-in-law were really excited to go to the Kentucky Monument today and also loved the walkway which was really nice to walk on.  It looks like bark and pieces of leaves but when you walked on it, it felt spongy. (The walkway is called Rainbow Turf which is a recyclable rubber and used for landscaping homes, paving playgrounds and parks).

We took another trip back to the Vicksburg National Military Park today and went to the south loop to the Kentucky Monument.  Here Karen and Ron, took a photo with two famous men in history, Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis.
