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.

Road Trip To Natchez National Cemetery (1)

Last Saturday my friend, Johnette and I took a road trip to Natchez, MS.  The trip was to visit her husbands grave who died two years ago and was buried in the Natchez National Cemetery.  On our way down 61 South we past by some strange looking buildings like the one above.  Not sure what it is but looks like a silo. 

Close-up view with a doorway! 

Above is the Old Country Store in Lorman, MS.  I have been in this store several times going to Natchez through the years. 

It's a country store/restaurant now serving "soul food" with a lunch buffet featuring heavenly fried chicken!

We took a two mile side trip down Red Lick Road to Rosswood Cotton Plantation Mansion which is a Mississippi Landmark circulated 1857 and checking it out one day.

Tour hours!

Rosswood was shelled during the Civil War, used as a hospital for both sides, and now had been restored and furnished.  You can view real plantation diaries and documents, tour the mansion and slave quarters and sleep in history.  We are looking forward to touring it.   To be continued...
