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.

Old Court House Fall Festival Pix

Today the Vicksburg Main Street presented the Downtown Fall Fest and was so much fun.  It started off with the 5th Annual Bricks and Spokes bike ride through Vicksburg! The ride started at 8:00 am downtown and continued over the Old Mississippi River Bridge and throughout Warren County. Participants could choose a 10-mile, 30-mile, 50-mile or 62-mile route. Shopping was at the Old Court House Flea Market with finds of great craft items until 5:00 pm. Fall Fest also featured the launch of the Fall Farmers Market, with live music, antique tractor displays and Percy King’s animal demonstrations.  Everyone enjoyed the day as much as the cooler weather that was a plus.
