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.

Continued - Short Walk (South Loop) In Park



General Sherman said of Ord,  "As his intimate associate since boyhood, the General here bears testimony of him that a more unselfish, manly, and patriotic person never lived"  He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.  

Across the roadway is the Vicksburg National Military Park Visitors Center.

Getting ready to go back under Clay St. to leave the park.  It was a beautiful day for a walk in the park.  I am fortunate to have lived my life in a town with hallowed ground that is well preserved for all our welcome visitors.
