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.

Making Waves on The MS River

We have not been by the Louisiana Circle Overlook in a week or so and drove by to take a quick peek Saturday afternoon. As we were turning in we saw a big towboat pushing a huge load of barges turning in the bend headed north.  The river has been on the rise again and at present standing at 38.8 feet with the flood stage at 43 feet.

A small towboat with an empty barge making it's way south towards the mouth of the Yazoo River, most likely going to the Port of Vicksburg.

Completing the turn and on it's way.  It would be nice to cut the trees down so we could have a bigger view of the bend in the river at the Louisiana Overlook...at least the leaves were off the tree.

I'd trim the trees myself simply to watch all the river activity. What a view you have.

That's so nice of you DeanO...I know you would. You would think the City of Vicksburg could see that also. It is a magnificent view! Maybe, I just might write and let them know...it want hurt! :)
