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.

More River Pictures

I guess by now you know I like to take pictures of all kinds of river traffic.  In the picture above, I have no idea what he is doing there unless clearing the bend of sand.  Two days later he is in the same position and around the bend was another big rig.  Picture taken on September 11, 2012.


Where I was standing.

Pictures taken yesterday and was surprised I could get the name off of the towboat. As we turned into the overlook he was already making his turn in the bend of the Mississippi at Vicksburg.

It was the M/V Marquette Warrior by Marquette Transportation pushing covered top hopper barges.

As the M/V Marquette Warrior makes it way to the next bend heading north, another tug boat pushing a cover top hopper barge came from the Yazoo Diversion Canal.

Did not stay long enough to see where it was headed.
