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.

Heading South

I'm not sure what this towboat ERGONOT is pushing.  Stop by the overlook to see if there was any river traffic this afternoon and was making it's way south on the Mississippi River at Vicksburg.  

Zoomed in and got a deckhand sitting down talking on a cell phone at the pilot's door.

The sandbar is way out and on a very hot sunny 97 degree weather.  The river is at 1.0 feet and rose: 0.03 foot.  Flood stage is 43 feet.

Deckhand standing up now by the pilot's doorway still talking on his cell phone.
