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.

At Mississippi Welcome Center

Looking south of the Mississippi Welcome Center, Vicksburg, MS. You can see how swollen the river has become.

The current is really swift and swirling...The I-20 bridge is to the left and to the right is the old Hwy 80 bridge. The Hwy 80 bridge is closed now and used only for rail purposes. Pier 4 shows scars from numerous hits from barges trying to maneuver going downstream.
