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.

Azalea Picture Published!

Marian Love Phillips said she knew spring was here when this azalea in her yard burst into bloom.

I had sent this picture in last week after the "river rat" picture and was surprised that they published it so soon in today's paper.  I never had one published back to back.  Photos are published by readers if it is current and of interest to the public, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographic skill shown.  It is usually put above the CLASSIFIED Section of the paper but this time was in the TOPIC Section.  I'm always humbled when I have any of my pictures published in our paper, The Vicksburg Post.
