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.

Old Court House Museum Spring Flea Market Today

The Old Court House Museum Spring Flea Market is being held today despite the weather predicting a cool front coming through with storms.  So far it has held off.  I went early this morning around 8:30 and was not too many people there but as I was leaving a lot more were coming.  I enjoyed seeing and talking to our famous hometown photographer, Marty Kittrell with his wife Karen, who had a booth selling his photos.  Saw some friends I haven't seen in a very long time and you just never know who you will run into.  Hope you enjoy the pictures I took.  

The Old Warren County Court House, was built in 1858, and stands today as Vicksburg’s most historic structure which stood and survived the civil war.  Guests and speakers such as Jefferson Davis, Ulysses S. Grant, Booker T. Washington, Teddy Roosevelt, and William McKinley were hosted here.  It's a Vicksburg icon for sure!

Playing some blues!

Even the pets of the vendors were having a good time!
