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.

Sunday Evening Drive

I thought this was a really cool picture of a barge going north heading for the bend in the Mississippi River at Vicksburg.  Bob and I were out and about last Sunday evening and decided to drive to the Louisiana overlook.  We saw this small towboat pushing it's empty barge containers but it was too dark to get the name off of it.  First time I have ever taken a picture this late in the evening where you could see the lights on inside the towboat.  (Click on picture to enlarge)

As we head back home we meet up again as the towboat is making the wide turn in the bend of the Mississippi River heading north to its destination.  Below is Diamond Jack's Casino all lit up like a Christmas tree.  We live so close to I-20 that a night while laying in bed you can hear the traffic going up and down the highway, east and west, and the towboats, with the hum of their engines, making their way north and south.

That does look like it would make a nice picture and it did. I just thought of something, we haven't gone out for just a drive in awhile. I am gonna have to put that on my to do list.

Thanks Rick for coming by and for the compliment. I think that would be a good idea to put on your to do list. Everything looks different and interesting when the sun goes down.
