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 Rooftop View

I have been waiting to get a chance to go to our new rooftop restaurant, 10 South Bar & Grill, ever since it opened in June and last night I got the chance.

My daughter, Kathy, called me Friday to invite me out to dinner at 10 South and I was overjoyed.  It was a wonderful experience and we had a great time.  It is the only rooftop dinning in downtown Vicksburg.  I have now seen Vicksburg downtown finally come alive again with cars all up and down Washington Street which was recently named as a Great American Main Street Association semi-finalist putting us in the Top 10 Main Streets in the United States.

Here are pictures I took of our first dinning experience at 10 South.  I highly recommend if you live here or come through our historical city to please check it out.  You will not be disappointed and the staff was very friendly and welcoming.  Get the fried green tomatoes because they are to die for.

You can see the Old Court House that stood during the Siege of Vicksburg.

A busy, busy bar!

Fried Green Tomatoes w/spicy craw-fish tomato gravy.

Sky all fired up after the sun went down!

Love the hanging lights around the top of the building.
