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.

A Walk In The Park

Monday it was so nice and warm that my daughter called and we met up in the Vicksburg National Military Park to enjoy a walk in the park together.  Here's a couple of pictures she took of me in front of the Mississippi Memorial.

Then on Thursday I took off to the park for a short walk.  Stopped by the memorial of Lt. General William F. Vilas, who was in the Battle of Champion Hill and the Vicksburg Campaign.

This is a killer to get back out here and get in shape.

I stopped to rest at the picnic tables in the park.

I looked down and saw a flower (weed) growing through the concrete cracks.  As soon as I took this picture a bee showed up!
