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.
My Facebook friend and Banjo player, Dan Knowles was back on the Mississippi again and arrived with a real treat in my hometown of Vicksburg today. Three riverboats were moored and in his 19 years of working these rivers had never seen anything quite like this before. I have lived here all my life and never seen anything like it and wished I had made it to the waterfront today.
Dan said the closest is America, then Queen of the Mississippi and further out is American Dutchess.
Sorry, I couldn't help but take this picture, he said.
Many thanks to my friend Dan Knowles for taking and posting these pictures on Facebook.
