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

Yesterday we drove by the Louisiana Circle to see if any towboats were coming and saw this one getting ready to make the turn in the bend of the Mississippi River.

This towboat was headed north while another towboat was headed south up the river.  I noticed that it held close to the Louisiana side and could not swing out because of the towboat at top and another towboat coming down that was out-of-site.

This towboat looks like it was towing a working barge.

Notice a little tugboat coming from the Yazoo Diversion Canal which leads to the Port of Vicksburg.  Diamond Jacks Casino in the foreground.
