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 Sunday Drive to Grand Gulf Park

Yesterday, I took a Sunday drive to Grand Gulf Military Park with my friend, Johnette.  It was a beautiful day for a road trip and we had a good time.  I've been there before but it was about 20 years ago.  It's called the Grand Gulf Military Monument which is located at Port Gibson, MS. We toured the museum, dogtrot house with water mill, a church, cemetery, rifle pits, observation tower (did not climb up in it), gun emplacements, campgrounds with a pavilion and restrooms. We did not get to go through the carriage house which was located next to the museum. 

Afterwards, we drove across from the park onto the River Road and ended up at the Mighty Mississippi River.  Just missed M/V Dennis Ross making his way northbound and eventually passing our hometown of Vicksburg, MS. 

Below are some pictures I took and have more to share with you in the next two days.  So please come back and check it out.
