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.

M/V Bruce Darst Heading South

This past Wednesday while I was out and about, I drove by the Louisiana overlook and as soon as I pulled up, I saw a towboat coming.  There is a big tree blocking the view of the MS River that I wished they would cut down.  It sure would help the visibility of the river plus the view.

Small boat may be taking food supplies to the M/V Bruce Darst as it makes it way down south with it's loaded barges. 
Two birds flew by to visit me!

Enjoyed seeing the pictures of the M/V Bruce Darst. My name is Bruce Darst and the boat was named for me in 2005, a big honor for an old rowboat guy.
Thanks
Bruce Darst
