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.

Working On The River!

A beautiful sunset over Louisiana.

M/V Amy Frances coming into view with a supply boat trying to catch up to her. The barrel of the cannon "Widow Blakely" shown looking out towards the sunset with the towboat going up towards the bridges on the MS River.

Bob and I went to the Louisiana Overlook this past Monday, December 10 and saw three towboats working the river.  You are lucky to see one sometimes but we hit it right this time.  Above M/V Bethany Dawn making her way towards to MS River bridges at Vicksburg with a small supply boat going to meet up with the M/V Amy Frances coming up the river.

M/V Bethany Dawn as she passes Vicksburg.

A pulled-out picture of M/V Bethany Dawn.

Awesome with three towboats in the picture at one time!

M/V Amy Frances making her way north as she gets closer to the right bank because of the sandbars in the middle of the river's bend.

M/V Amy Frances

This was the last towboat to make her way by Vicksburg before we left.  Could not make out the name of the vessel because it was getting dark.

This design is spectacular! You definitely know how to
keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
..HaHa!) Excellent job. I really enjoyed what you had
to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

Too cool!
