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.

Sunday's Riverfront Park Scenes

We had such a nice time yesterday at the Riverfront Park that we decided to go back again and maybe we could see a barge going up or down the Mississippi River and we got lucky.  We are forturnate to live about a mile or so from this spot.  In fact, at night when all is quiet, I can hear the barges going up and down the river, the interstate traffic and the train crossing the old Hwy 80 river bridge.  Enjoy the scenes from our visit.

Have a safe journey, Lydia Marie!
