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 Bear-of-a-Day!

My Facebrook friend, Layne Logue, met Jake Anderson yesterday while stopping for a break while paddling the Mississippi River.  He started in Iowa and has paddled 905 miles so far to Vicksburg.  Jake called Layne yesterday for supplies and got him a double pounder with fries and some other minor stuff. He will take the Atchafalaya River (south of Natchez) to the Gulf of Mexico.  

Jake pushing off continuing his journey!

An hour later he called Layne to tell him that he just watched a black bear swim the Mississippi River about 10 miles south of Vicksburg. He caught it halfway and escorted to the Louisiana side.  The river is 2/3 miles wide in that area and said he was getting tired just watching him.  How cool it is to witness that! Lucky guy! 

Wishing Jake a successful and safe travels on the Mighty Mississippi and Atchafalaya Rivers.
