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.

Labor Day Camping



Yesterday, we drove to the Louisiana Circle to see if any barges were going up or down the river.  As we turned in we saw one going up in the bend of the river.  While glancing across the river on the Louisiana side we saw a bunch of tents and people on the sandbar camping out.  Sure looks like a fun way to spend a Labor Day weekend!  Here are some pictures I took of the surrounding area...even got the birds in on it!


Birds taking a safe place at the Louisiana Circle with the Riverfront Park below near the MS River.

Another barge coming up the MS River.

It's towboat, Francis Benedict pushing the barges.

I would certainly call this a birds eye view!

Great shots!
Strangely enough I spent time on a sandbar and took pictures of birds this weekend!

Thanks Dawn...I love the sandbar...when I was much younger we belonged to a hunting camp near the river and would ride our wheelers on the sandbar...that was a lot of fun! :)
PS: I have posted some pictures of that on my blog in 07 or 08. You can do a search at the top of my blog to find it.
