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.

Lucy at LA Circle

The last picture before we left the Louisiana Circle around 7:55 or so.

The clouds looks like a giant mushroom or tornado.

This picture is a little blurred of Lucy by the LA Circle Sign.

On the way home from dropping Grandpa Bob off yesterday evening, Lucy and I noticed how big the sun was setting to the west. I did not have my camera with me so I had to run by the house to grab it. We got there to late to get a picture and the sun had already settled down behind the huge clouds. It looked liked a big thunderhead cloud had formed but we did not have rain in the forecast. She really had a great time playing at the Louisiana Circle while I took pictures of her.

Thanks CDGardens....Lucy's Mom, Debi, thinks the clouds look like an atomic bomb! Thanks for coming by my friend. :)

That skyline was beautiful. I would like to visit there someday.

Marian, I spent a few hours in Vicksburg many years ago on the way back to Texas from a vacation in South Carolina. I saw as much as I could in the time I was there. I wished for more time to have been able to better appreciate the history of the area.
