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.

Bob's Copper Trees @ Flea Market

This past Saturday Bob and I had a booth to sell his copper trees at the 29 Annual Old Court House Flea Market.  It was from 8:00 to 5:00 p.m.  We were lucky to get right in front of the New Court house facing the Old Court House Museum.  It was completely around the Old Court House block and part of the New Court House grounds.  This was our second attempt to sell his trees.  In August we made a trip to Water Valley, MS, for the Watermelon Carnival to get our feet wet.  With the help of Rex and his family over at Deer Camp Blog we had a great time and was a good experience for us.  We got all set up and during the day saw and visited with friends I had not seen in years and also a friend, retired Dr. and his wife, who are residing in Oxford, MS.  You could not have asked for a more beautiful day!  We really enjoyed ourselves and made a nice profit.  Below are some pictures I took during the course of the day.

We had music to entertain us on the Old Court House Museum lawn.

Fall arrangements were throughout the downtown area for the festivities.
