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.

Setting Up Early This Morning

Heading up the stairs of the Old Court House Museum before the 29th Annual Flea Market gets underway.

This is such a majestic building and to think it withstood the Civil War here.  It encompass a whole city block as well as the New Court House building.  

Vendors setting up to the left of the court house.

Facing the New Court House leaving the Old Court House walkway.

Vendors to the right getting ready for the big day.

Bob ready to sell his copper trees and his paintings!

I love visiting flea markets, even a novice civil war collector such as myself.
Find anything good let me know.

Just what are you looking for? You need to come on down to Vicksburg and check out Vicksburg National Military Park. It's awesome and I know you would really enjoy it! :)
