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.

Kansas City 0543008 Passing Thru Vicksburg


This was interesting to see the towboat, Kansas City 0543008, beside another barge pushing upstream.  Usually all the barges are in front of the towboat.  This was a first for me to see. 

Zoomed in on the banks of the Vicksburg Riverfront Park and it looks like an old barge that has washed up and now trees are growing in and around it.

More debris lying on the banks of the MS River at Vicksburg.

The Casino is an interesting photograph...I would never had guessed it for a building unless you had pointed it out

We have five of them and all are on the MS River except for the Grand Station downtown at the waterfront area which is the Yazoo River Diversion Canal. My daughter, Kathy, works at Riverwalk Casino as a supervisor and makes a good living. :)
