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.

Vicksburg Fall Festival and Flea Market

Tomorrow will be a fun and beautiful day to get out and enjoy the fall festival and flea market here in Vicksburg.  Bands, bikes and booths will dominate downtown Vicksburg this weekend with the 3rd Annual Bricks and Spokes, the 18th Vicksburg Fall Festival and the 29th Annual Old Court House Flea Market.  It will start this evening at 6:30 p.m. with performances by the bands Osgood & Blaque and SlapHappy at the River Stage on Washington Street.  The festival will resume Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the downtown area with the flea market at the Old Court House a few blocks away.

It will also kick off the fall Farmers' Market, which will run through November 24th downtown.

The Third Annual Bricks & Spokes begins at 8:00 a.m. Saturday, with riders taking 10-, 30-, or 50-mile rides.  Bikers will leave the Senior Center and ride into Louisiana across the U.S. 80 bridge and return using the old U.S. 80 bridge.  The 10-mile riders will stay in town, and the 30- and 50-mile riders will head into the county before returning to town.

Bob last year checking out the vendors.

At the Old Court House Museum will be 18 food and 150 arts and crafts vendors that will occupy the streets surrounding the Old Court House for the flea market from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday.  There will be some excellent woodwork, swings and metalwork...a man who makes fire bowls for the outdoors and a man selling Egyptian cotton.  He comes every year, and people like to come see him. There will be lots of cools things to see.

My husband and I will also have a booth and selling his copper trees and paintings. We have been doing this for about 3 years now.  You can view his trees w/prices and his painting on his blog at:
