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.

It's Towboat Time

Two towboats pushing a cover top hopper barge.

Scout and Ergonot towboats. 

Getting ready to go around the bend of the river.

Soon a small boat appeared bring supplies to....

...a working towboat coming into view.

Small boat pulled up along side the M/V Archie Wilson.
 
Unloading supplies.

Supplies loaded and heading north.

Big flyover of birds!

Another towboat pushing a working barge coning into view.

It's an Ergon towboat.

It may be headed to the Port of Vicksburg.
