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.

Navy Circle at Vicksburg

Their are two circles where you can view the MS River at Vicksburg.  One is the Louisiana Circle that  I posted about recently and the other one closest to the bridges is the Navy Circle.  In this picture you can see the bend in the river and Ameristar Casino in it's cofferdam.  Navy Circle was where, when I was a lot younger and dating, a great place to hang out.  Now both circles are closed after dark. 

A view of many sandbars that pop up when the river levels go down.  This is near the bend in the river in Lousisiana.  When I was younger, would go to Louisiana and go to the sandbars and actually swim in the river.  I would not do that today!   At our old hunting camp, Brown's Point, further up the MS River on Kings Point Island, we would ride our 4-wheelers which was so much fun.  I really missed those days!

This picture was taken when I pulled up around Navy Circle to leave.

I zoomed in and got a shot of the flag atop the bridge that is changed out every few months by people who donate the flag to be flown.  A very nice gesture that was started by a lady here in Vicksburg years ago.
