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.

Pix of Wildlife In The Park

The picture above was taken by my Facebook friend, Marty Kittrell, of Vicksburg, MS.  Marty is a great photographer and has seen and photograph deer in our Vicksburg National Military Park. He even gave me a print of a deer standing by a cannon in the park at the Old Court House Flea Market a few years ago.  

I have yet to see a deer in our National Military Park and have lived here all my life and walked for years in the park.  I have seen turkey's there and did not have my camera with me at the time.  A big mistake! There are also hogs in the park but have never seen one but was a big write-up in the paper a couple of years ago.  Click here to read the article on the hogs.  

Lucky are the wildlife that live in our great wild outdoors in the park that is protected by the hallowed grounds where many fought and died in the Siege of Vicksburg during the Civil War.
