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.

Riverfront Park Treat

Yesterday evening Bob and I drove down to the Vicksburg Riverfront Park to enjoy some time just sitting on a bench and watching the lazy Mississippi River roll on by. We were lucky to see one barge going north just passing under the bridges when we got there.  I also noticed that it was very close to the Louisiana bank side.  Then coming around the bend another big barge going south.  All of a sudden we heard a boat motor and as it appeared from behind the trees it was racing towards the bridges going south.  A lot of action on the river all at once!  We also took pictures of each other.  It was a beautiful windy day and it was a perfect one to go down to the park and enjoy the scenic view of the Mighty Mississippi.

Could not see the name very clearly on this towboat pushing empty barge containers up the river.  I was surprised how close the pilot was to the bank.
