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.

Come Chill On The River!

Looking forward to Chillin' on the River tonight with our hometown band, The Chill!

Friday, City workers draped an American Flag over the Levee Street depot, a tourist draw during the historic 2011 flood, and, now that the water has receded, the backdrop for Fourth of July activities in Vicksburg.  The picture above was taken yesterday as the stage was being set up for tonight's fireworks display.  Also, today is a living History at the Vicksburg National Military Park; bringing gospel to the Bottom, Marcus Bottom; barbecue buffet at Monsour's; Blues, Gospel and Jazz at the depot downtown, starting at 1:00; barbecue at Duff's; 7:00 tonight Chillin on the 4th at the depot and at 9:00, fireworks!  Hopefully, tomorrow I will have some good fireworks photos to post for you!  Happy Fourth!  God Bless American and God Bless Our Troops!

A new monument marker at the Depot commemorating the Vicksburg Campaign and Siege.  

Employees from the Vicksburg Monument Co. unloaded and placed a new monument commemorating the 150 anniversary of the Civil War next to the Levee Street Depot last week.  The tablets, as well as new ones in Port Gibson and Raymond, give a brief history of the Campaign for Vicksburg.  The permanent markers were paid for by a National Park Service Preserve American grant that also brought a group of travel writers to Vicksburg in April.  "Each community picked images that depicted the area during the siege that are still there today," said Jeff Richardson, City of Vicksburg landscaping director.

Beautiful picture of the Levee Street Depot with fireworks and flag. I am so glad to see it is water free again.
