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.

Rolling Up and Down The River



Towboat Ron W. Callengan going under the bridges.

A beautiful day in the neighborhood!

Took a picture of this towboat but was not readable.

Another towboat with the name Ingram Barge Co., pushing barges upstream.

Bend in the river at Vicksburg, MS.

Getting ready to make the wide turn.

Went by the overlook yesterday and looked down and the towboat Ron W. Callegen was headed downstream towards the bridges and as that one was going under two more were headed upstream.  The river was abuzz yesterday with the roar of engines pushing barges.  You could even smell the fumes in the air while a train blew it's whistle approaching the old Hwy 80 bridge crossing the mighty Mississippi.  Here are a few pix I took of the river traffic passing by my hometown.
