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.

The Queen Is Back In Town

Getting ready to walk through the entrance to see her majesty, American Queen, parked at the City waterfront on the Yazoo Diversion Canal just off the Mississippi River which leads to the Port of Vicksburg.

A tour boat, Sweet Olive, in front of the Queen which is out-of-service.  If you notice the steam from the rear by the paddle wheel it was playing music from the Calliope.

Trying to get the front end in the picture...such a huge steamboat!

Steam coming from the front end as the Queen was blowing her horn.  I just love that sound.

A beautiful day in Vicksburg for the American Queen to arrive at a mild 53 degrees.

A passenger looking down at the paddle wheel as it was turning in the water.

I went up to the second floor of a parking lot and as I got there to take this picture and towboat was pushing  a container towards the MS River from the Port of Vicksburg.
