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.

A Sweet Smelling Magnolia

I took these pictures this morning in our backyard of a very sweet smelling magnolia bloom.  We have two Magnolia trees and this one is located near the back wooden fence.  We moved this tree from Springridge Drive after it had been in the ground for 2 years at that location.  We were flooded out from a subdivision and FEMA bought the house/homes and was torn down.  We save this tree and a Japanese Magnolia tree that we also put in the backyard.  The other magnolia tree is located at the side gate entrance to the backyard.  I planted it from a seedling that was in our front flower bed. I was surprised it took off and is almost as tall as the one near the back fence.  I also planted a cedar tree from a seedling from the front flower bed and put it in the backyard.  It really makes for a very shady area, which I like.   

This is the same magnolia before it blossomed.  It had been raining a few days ago and after the rain I took this picture.  I really like the way the raindrops are laying on the bulb.  I may enter this one in an art photography showing this fall with the Vicksburg Art Association.
