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.

Frog Picture Published

This green frog was hanging out under my daughter's umbrella on her back deck in Virginia a few weeks ago.  She had put it in the flower box but he hopped back to hide under the umbrella again and posed for me!   

Marian Love Phillips of Vicksburg captured this image of this little guy hanging out under an outside umbrella on a deck.

Give Us Your Best Shot!  The Vicksburg Post will accept for publication photos submitted by reader.  The photos should be current and of interest to the public, either because of their subject matter or their oddity, or the photographs skill shown.  Submitted photos should be accompanied by complete caption information and include a phone number for the photographer.  Photos may be submitted electronically at, in person at Post Plaza or by mail to The Vicksburg Post, News photos, P.O. Box 821668, Vicksburg, MS  39182.

I submitted this photo with the caption on top of the picture and they put in the caption under the picture.  They always change it up, which is alright by me.  I sent it in on August 15 and had visited my daughter in Virginia back the last week of July.  Sometimes they will hold pictures and had forgotten all about it until it was published in today's paper.  Once again I am very humbled by the fact that they think my pictures are worth being published in our hometown paper.
