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.

Art Park @ Catfish Row

Yesterday, we went to town for an errand and I decided to drive by the Art Park where the kids love to go and play.  Well, no one was there...it was in the mid-fifties and a bit cool to come to the park or get wet.  Here are a few pictures I took as I walked around the playground.  

Playground for the kiddies.

River City Story Walls.




Catfish Splash Fountain

Catfish swimming on floor of the fountain.

There are times when smoke or steams comes out of the stacks.



Catfish Row exhibits Vicksburg's colorful history.  The Parterre Garden, Catfish Splash Fountain, Paddle Wheel Commons, River City Story Walls, "Big Mama" Sprague Artifacts, and Riverfront Mural Promenade provide playful insights into Vicksburg's yester years.  Here, art brings to life Vicksburg's continuing legendary place in history.
