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.

A Mockingbird Song

Today while I was out I decided to drive by the Louisiana Circle to see if I could catch a towboat in the MS River but unfortunately I just missed one going around the bend.  I then noticed a mockingbird on top of a rotten tree stump and took a picture of it through my windshield.  A couple of years ago I took a similar picture of a mockingbird on this very stump and submitted to our paper which was published. Below is a close-up of the mockingbird singing a happy song on a pretty hot day in my hometown of Vicksburg, MS.  

Singing a happy song!
