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.

Sunday @ Sandbar

Three young adults enjoying a beautiful day on the sandbar on the Louisiana side.  They look like little ants walking around.  

Getting ready to leave and they see two towboats coming around the bend.

Waiting for them to pass.  I would imagine the waves from the towboats will be a problem in their small boat.

A small towboat pushing three empty barge containers dowstream.

You can barely see them waiting in their small boat for the Maritime to pass by.  These two towboats were pushing only three containers each and have seen up to 25 or more at a time being pushed by towboats.  Containers being empty and heading downstream makes a trip for the riverboat pilots easier to maneuver.
