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 Carl Cannon Easing Through Vicksburg

M/V Carl Cannon heading north under the bridges at Vicksburg...

...with a big empty load.

The sandbars are way out and coming through Vicksburg and staying within the buoys to avoid running aground can be very stressful for the riverboat pilots.

A small boat speeds by.

Up close picture of M/V Carl Cannon as it passes Vicksburg.

Pictures were taken on August 6 and the river has dropped more since.  I have lived here all my life and never seen the river this low before.  We have rain and storms predicted today and the MS River is at 0.9 feet and rose: 0.2 foot.  Flood stage is 43 feet.

I ωas actually excitеd enough to leave a thought :-) I actually do
haѵe a few questionѕ for уou if it's allright. Could it be just me or do a few of the remarks come across like left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post.
