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.

My 3rd Cousin In Iraq

My 3rd cousin, SPC Clayton Liebherr, is serving in Iraq and my first cousin, Mary Ann, sent me a few pictures of him last week.  Since then I have found a site on Facebook called, 1-14 Infantry Battalion, Charlie Company, loaded with pictures of the troops, including his company.  This is a great way for family and friends to keep up with their loved ones so far away.   Here are a few pictures of Clayton with his fellow soldiers in Iraq.
