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.

Stormy Weather Coming

Went by the Louisiana Circle today to see if I could catch a towboat passing by my hometown of Vicksburg, MS.  I just missed an empty towboat making the turn in the bend of the Mississippi River.  Here are a few pictures I took and made the best of it after the towboat had passed.

A pulled-out picture on a very cloudy and windy day.

This is a dead tree stump at the circle.  There was a sparrow on the very top but flew off before I snapped this picture.  Last year I was able to take a picture of a mockingbird on the same stump and it was published in our hometown paper.

As I was leaving, I stopped to take a picture of the flag atop the old Hwy 80 bridge and saw this little sparrow looking around on the guard rail.  

I guess it was checking out which way the wind was blowing.

The wind was very strong today because of an impending storms headed our way.  

Strong winds and storms are in the forecast for this evening and tomorrow.
