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.

Over the River Run

Walkers and runners fill the U.S. 80 bridge Saturday morning during the 21 annual Over the River Run. (Katie Carter ~ The Vicksburg Post)

William Kazery (27 minutes, nine seconds)
Instead of running over a muddy Choctaw Trails course on Saturday morning, Clinton High School cross country coach Gary Howell had his team run over the Mississippi River.
The change of plans worked out great for William Kazery. The 17-year-old junior won his third race this year in Warren County, taking home the 21st Over the River Run overall championship out of a field of 261 runners.
A total of 603 people registered for the five-mile run, walk and one-mile fun run, and 489 finished.
My youngest daughter, Suzi and I entered this way back when and have not walked it since. It's an experience to say the least and the view is spectacular. I love walking but this was a long walk across the Mississippi River Bridge to Louisiana and back. You have to be in good physical condition to do this. I feel like my daughter Kathy and I walked over 5 miles the other day (to Louisiana and back) at the Canton Flea Market. At least the weather was a lot cooler than it was this past Thursday at 92 degrees.
My congrats to William Kazery and all the winners who took home a trophy!
