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.

Afternoon Pix @ Navy Circle

Drove by the Navy Circle this afternoon and took a few pictures at the site of Battery Benton, a Union siege position consisting of two 42-pounder rifled cannon, named after the Union gunboat "Benton" of Admiral Porter's river fleet.  The battery dueled with Confederate positions located at South Fort, and sustained casualties when a Confederate shell exploded within its fortifications.

Looks like a huge thunderhead building up north of town.

Big wheels!

 Looking inside the barrel.

Boom!
