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.

Onlookers Checking Out The Flooding

There was a lot of people downtown taking pictures of the flooding near the Depot.  I ran into my daughter, Debra and granddaughter Lucy (with glasses) and her friend Kelsey.  

Now the MS & Yazoo Valley RR Station Depot has algae around it and flooding will not crest until this Thursday at 57.5 feet, a good 14 feet above flood stage.

People coming from all over getting a glimpse of the flooding south of town.

Lucy and Kelsey at the horse trough that's in front of the Depot.  We used to have horse and carriage tours though town.

You cannot drive down the hill to Levee Street anymore because of water leaking through the temporary flood walls now. 
 
I do hope the temporary flood walls hold.

It was my first time to see an American Red Cross van and the Vicksburg  police were on hand making sure everyone was safe.  To be continued...
