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.

Some Sunday River Traffic

M/V Harold B. Dodd

After church we drove by the lookout circle to see if we could catch some river traffic going by.  As we approach the circle about five cars were there and we had to park almost at the exit.  I was able to zoomed in from our truck and get the M/V Harold B. Dodd as it went under the bridges with a huge load of about 40 barge containers.  As I looked back towards the bend in the river, I saw another barge coming.  Decided to go down to the Vicksburg Riverfront Park below and take some pictures of it passing by.  It was a beautiful day yesterday and was so enjoyable just sitting on the benches with the sun shinning down and a cool breeze blowing.  A very nice day to be out and about.  Below are some pictures I took of the M/V Joshua David Esper of Marquette Transportation passing by my home town of Vicksburg going south.

It looks like you had a beautiful day for taking pictures after church yesterday. The trees are putting on leaves I see. Spring is Springing!
