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.

Scenes Near Our Waterfront

Ride a crooked rail - You have to passed over railroad tracks to go beyond the flood walls to the Yazoo River Diversion Canal.  The impressive Yazoo & Mississippi Valley RR Station depot is to the right.

An Egret looking for food at the edge of the waterfront.

Sweet Olive moored at the waterfront.  It's our tour boat on the canal and MS River.  Note the Egret.

Horizon Casino boat moored in it's cofferdam.

Another Egret making it's way searching for food.  My husband, Bob, took both pictures of the Egrets for me since I was driving and stayed in our truck and zoomed in.  Turned out pretty good!

Took this picture of Catfish Row and where the Farmers' Market is held on Wednesday and Saturday's near the old train depot as we were leaving the waterfront.  If you are ever in Vicksburg, come down to the waterfront and check out our beautiful murals on the flood wall.  You will be very impressed!

Took this picture of a gazebo going up the hill on Clay Street yesterday towards Washington Street, the main artery of downtown Vicksburg.  It looks somewhat crooked to me!
