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.

Deer In The Park

Saw this deer (doe) on the north loop across from the Mississippi State Memorial in the Vicksburg National Military Park yesterday afternoon while touring the park with my grandson (Carl) and his girlfriend (Courtney) from Wisconsin and my daughter, Kathy. The pictures were taken with my cell phone by my grandson because my batteries had gone out on my camera.  This is the first time I have every seen deer in the park and was really excited. I have seen a lot of turkeys and pictures of hogs in the park as well.

My grandson took this picture of a really nice buck in a bottom near the Iowa State Memorial on the south loop of our park.  I could have gotten a closer picture if my camera had not died on me! Deer are not spooked in our park because they have never been shot at, of course. Deer are very lucky living here in the great wild outdoors within the city limits!
