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.

Backyard Flowers

This ant had to get in the picture!

A few years ago I received a lily for Easter and planted it in a huge pot in our backyard.  We really enjoy watching it bloom.  Here are a few pictures that I took over the weekend of the lily.  Also, when we moved to our "new" home back in April 1991, we brought our two year old magnolia tree and planted it in our backyard.  This year it's full of blooms.  I will post a picture of the magnolia (top picture) as soon as it is in full bloom. The magnolia was officially designated as the State Flower by the 1952 Legislature.

Very pretty...The Easter Lily is lovely and it makes it special when you can see it bloom repeatedly.

Magnolias are beautiful. My Grandmother had a shrub when I was young. It is now a tree.
