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.

Patricia I. Hart Heading South

Yesterday, as we drove by the overlook we had just missed the barge, Patricia I. Hart, heading south with her loaded cargo.  I decided to chase her down to the Riverwalk Casino.  It reminded me years ago when I was a teenager and visiting my Aunt Ruby and Uncle Clyde in Missouri.  After seeing my Uncle off at the railroad station, we would get on the highway and chase him in their Cadillac.  He would then blow the train whistle at us as a final goodbye, headed towards Memphis.  What fond memories!  (Note the train on the old Hwy 80 bridge)

There she is!

Just missed a rain shower at Riverwalk Casino where my daughter, Kathy, works as a Supervisor.  

A beautiful view of the skyline looking back at the bridges.  The river stage here at Vicksburg dropped six-tenths of a foot overnight to 47.8 feet.  Its crest at 57.1 feet on May 19 was the highest in Vicksburg since 1927.  Stages are expected to remain above the 43-foot flood stage until June 19, according to the National Weather Service River Forecast Center.
