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.

Battle Of The Barge

Finally, after 22 days of being stuck on the I-20 bridge span, a partially sunken soybean barge was broken free this past Wednesday, clearing the waterways. It was a 90- to 100-foot section of the barge that was pulled by cranes and taken across the river to the west bank just south of the bridge.

The soybean-laden barge lodged next to the pier on March 23 after 30 south bound barges, driven by a swollen MS River, broke loose from the Marquette Transportation tow and scattered, some hitting the U.S. 80 bridge, some hitting the I-20 bridge and some floating south of the city to near LeTournau landing before being rounded up.

My husband and I were there on Wednesday morning around 11:00 a.m. taking pictures to post on my blog and by 1:35 p.m. it was accomplished.
