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.

The Iowa State Memorial

Today I took the south loop to our Vicksburg National Military Park for an afternoon walk and took some pictures of the Iowa State Memorial.  My mother used to live in a house behind this monument when she was little and she told me she used to play on it. This side of the park loops real close to I-20 and also Mission 66, a road through town.

I took this picture with the sun shinning against it.  A very unusual look!
