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.

Lights Out

I did not get to post/blog at all yesterday because of some trees that were blown down by high winds on Entergy transmission lines which knocked out power to more than 7,000 customers.  My power did not come on until 3:15 this morning after being off for about 13 hours. 

The bad news is more rain and storms are forecast for this afternoon and evening. 

It has been a rough five days with no water in the city because of a leak in a 36-inch main waterline into the city that was finally fixed and then the electricity goes off! 

Hopefully, life will calm down for awhile in my hometown of Vicksburg, MS and everything can get back to some kind of normalcy.
