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.

Short Walk (South Loop) In Vicksburg Military Park

Getting ready to walk under the Clay Street bridge to the south loop.  

After you go under the bridge you have a nice incline to go up.

At the top you have another bridge to walk over for the trains to pass under.  Looking towards the east.   
Looking towards the west. 
   
I was lucky to see a train heading east and capture this picture.  After I waved and took the picture he blew his train whistle at me!

Looking out towards the Iowa State Memorial where I was headed. 






This is a far off picture of Major General John A. McClernand.
