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.

More Photos of Flooding Downtown

The caboose at the Depot is submerged.

Right at the windows of the Depot.

A sad site to see the Depot inundated by the flood with algae around it.

Grand Station Casino boat rising above the flood walls in its cofferdam.

A grand view on top of one of two parking garages in town.

Yazoo Diversion Canal out of it's banks with the flood walls holding back the water.

Higher view of the Grand Station Casino boat.

Levee Street closed because of the water leaking through the temporary flood wall.

Marian, your pictures are awesome!

If it is wild boar hunting you want, come to Texas. Recently, a herd of them were driven out of the Trinity River west of Dallas into a suburb, Irving, where they made a huge mess of people's lawns. That was until traps were put out and many "porkers" were sent to the packing plant. The Texas legislature passed a law allowing the hunting of boars from helicopters to try and thin them out. They are really bad in the hill country of Central Texas. Leland Payne

Thanks Leland - Let me get a Mississippi boar first and then I will look at Texas! I have seen videos of boar hunting by helicopter from one of my Facebook friends...that's about the only way to go if you are overrun with them like that!

Really a sad site of downtown. I truly hope that everyone was able to get out of arms way from all this water. Tornados, floods seem to be the norm nowdays. The Natchez Trace from Hwy 82 Mathiston to Maben exit is a complete disaster, it would make you sick to see what the tornado did back 3 weeks ago--no more big trees along the Trace in this section. Thanks for sharing.

Wow...lots of water! I've never experienced a flood of any kind and from the picture I hope I never do. Its bad enough having seen/been through 3 tornadoes in my short lifetime.
