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.

Some Saturday Night Fun!

After attending the St. Francis/St. Aloysius Annual Class Reunion celebrating 58 years from graduating (Class of 1959), I made my way to The Big Muddy a restaurant, lounge with music, starring the Leaf River Blues Band that my son-in-law, Stan Bryant, was playing.  I was also met by my daughter, Theresa and hubby Stan while he was taking a break before the last hour of playing which started at 7:00 pm and ended at 10:00 pm.  A lot of people were dancing and having a good time listening to the blues being played.  I enjoyed watching Stan play for the very first time and they are booked to play again in June.

Band members are: Bobby D. Benison (Guitars and Harmonica)
Jimmy Burge (Bass)
Bobby Coleman (Drums)
Nathan Bankston (Vocals)
Jim Grantham (Keys)

The Leaf River Blues Blues Band was founded in 2005 by Bobby D. Benison. Bobby is an exceptional guitarist, playing old blues "finger style". Their influences include Willie Dixon, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Elmore James and Robert Johnson.
