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.

Hail Storm In Vicksburg

This afternoon we had warnings of a storm approaching and all of a sudden we had hail falling out of the sky.  Above is a picture of one that bounced on our front porch...I guess the size of a quarter.  

To the right of the porch is our driveway and you can see the top of our GMC Sierra truck that was covered with hail.  Good thing we have a huge oak tree that hangs over our driveway that may have protected the roof.  At least it was small compared to what happened in Jackson and Pearl, MS.  Hail the size of apples and baseballs fell that peppered the paint off of a house and blew out the windows of a home in Pearl.  Also, a lot of busted up car windows/vehicles.

On our bench on the back porch.
