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.

Spring Hits Vicksburg

Spring is only a few days away but Vicksburg is showing off it's flowering fruit trees, etc., already.  You can see the grass turning green while the woods are beginning to put on a new spring coat as well.  Today the high was only 40 degrees but according to the weatherman, we will have temps in the low 70's for the rest of the week and 78 degrees by Friday. Looks like Spring has sprung here in my hometown.
