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.

Flowers @ Louisiana Circle

I drove by the Louisiana Circle at Vicksburg yesterday to see if some towboats were passing by on the Mississippi River but no river traffic was in site.  On the side of the hill I did see some pretty Pink Evening Primrose flowers and took these pictures. When I was younger and outside playing, my sister, brother and I used to picked these and took turns getting our noses all yellowed.   We called them buttercups! Very fond memories whenever I see them.
