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.

Twyla Luhr Heading Down River

Yesterday, we went by the overlook to see if there was a barge going up or down the river.  Sure enough, here comes, Twyla Luhr, with her big load coming through Vicksburg headed for a destination down south.  It amazes me how these barges can make a turn in the Mississippi River coming so close to the banks near Diamond Jacks Casino.   I know they have plenty of room but from an overlook or in the parking lot at the Casino they look so close. Vicksburg is located in the crook of the state on the west side and it's an awesome site to watch them come though my hometown.  As I write this post, I can hear the hum of the tugboats on the river. Below are several pictures I took and you can see for yourself what a big load she was pushing.

Diamond Jacks to the far right.

Passing by the Riverfront Park below.

Got this shot of a Sparrow on a decayed tree limb.

Zoomed in and got Twyla Luhr passing by.  Note man in front doorway and another man standing on a step stool doing a repair.  (Click on picture to get a closer look)

Heading down south towards New Orleans!
