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.

Trip To Southern Heritage Air Museum

After we left Poverty Point in Epps, Louisiana we stopped and had lunch and made our way over to the Vicksburg-Regional Airport in Mound, Louisiana.

The Southern Heritage Air Museum is known for hosting, "The Biggest Little Air Show". We were graciously met by, Patty Mekus, President of the Southern Heritage Air Foundation. She gave us a very informative tour of the history of aviation and the many veteran hero's of past wars.  It was very interesting hearing all the war stories from the men in uniform and grateful for their service in serving our country and preserving our freedom.  If you go, check out the gift shop and the many events that are held with air shows and plane rides. Follow them on Facebook.

A cute wind airplane met us at the front entrance of the Vicksburg-Regional Airport. 

Nice Moose!
