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.

Going Back In Time

I came across this old photo not long ago and wondered what monument it was taken at approximately 65 years ago.  It is a picture of myself, with my Aunt Ruby standing behind me and my mother with my brother, now deceased, and my sister, Laura.  I had walked by this monument many, many times and went by there the other day and took a picture of it.  It is the Mississippi Monument in our Vicksburg National Military Park.  I do not recall having this picture taken but it was very nostalgic to go back to where it all happened so long ago.

I'm a little shy here!

A few years ago this Mississippi emblem seal was added to the front. 

Added to the right side...

...and to to the left side

Not sure if this was already there or not at the time.

And the eagles!

Picture at the monument looking down at our truck.  I could imagine myself as a child running down this hill after our picture was taken.

Thank you Long Ridge Deer Camp(JACK). I have walked a many a mile in our Civil War Park. This is the long North Loop and we also have a South Loop that is smaller. The park is 16 miles long but usually take a short cut on the North loop. You need to come down and go through it one day. It's awesome! Check it out online at:
