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.

River to Crest Today at 57.1

The two lower floors of the Levee Street depot have gone under and before the water came up was in a $1.53 million redevelopment of the former Yazoo & MS Valley RR Station.  Nothing was in the building when the water came in, but postponed all efforts.  After the water recedes it will have be to checked for bacteria and molds.  It will house scale models of steamships, railroad and aviation displays and upstairs will be the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau and Main Street by year's end. The displays remain in storage - something of a saving grace while a slow, month-long recession of water is likely now.

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith was in town preparing for a live broadcast in front of the depot this past Tuesday.  Smith is a native of Holly Spring, MS and graduated from University of MS.
'Part of our goal is to help people understand who these individuals are.  This isn't just a big soup of people from Memphis down to Louisiana.  They are individuals and individual towns with rich histories and we want to tell part of that history'.  Shepard Smith - Fox New Anchor
