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.

Yesterday's River Traffic at Sunset

An Ergon towboat taking supplies to Jay Luhr!

As the Jay Luhr approaches the two bridge spans it slows down as supplies are loaded.

An Ergon towboat pushing Jay Luhr.  Must be having mechanical problems.

Finally moving again.

Ergon towboat leaving after dropping off supplies.

Getting ready to make the bend in the river as the Ergon towboat heads to port.

A beautiful sunset taking place.

As we head up the hill to leave I see where Jay Luhr and Ergon towboat makes the turn with another towboat in site.

What a beautiful sunset!

Jay Luhr moving the big mofo crane, Henry M. Shreve, own by the Corps of Engineers passing St. Louis, MO, last October.  It was film while standing on the Eads Bridge by analogsafari.
