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.

M/V Dan Jaworski Passing Thru Vicksburg

M/V Dan Jaworski passing through Vicksburg this afternoon with a huge load of coal. 
(Note the people on the sand bar)

The Mississippi River at Vicksburg has been at 3.9 feet for the last couple of days.  Flood stage is 43 feet.  We do have a chance of rain today and tonight with a high of 88 and low of 71 degrees.

I heard about the heat you have. We had a lot of rain yesterday. 70 mm about 3 ", our little basement was with water. A town nearby got almost 5" and its a disaster there with water.

Sorry to hear that you basement was with water...I sympathize with you. The house that I moved into after I married my second husband went under water once when we were dating and twice when we were married. Had to moved into an apartment to get it all cleaned up and repaired. The last time it was 3 feet of water and I told him that it is this house or me...I'm out of here. Can't live like this. We moved.
