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.

M/V Pat Voss Passing Through Vicksburg

Three men are waiting on deck of the M/V Pat Voss for the supply boat making it's way to deliver their supplies as the towboat slows down for the drop off.   

A pulled-back picture as the small boat pulls next to the M/V Pat Voss.

A cloudy and dreary day for the M/V Pat Voss near the bend of the Mississippi River at Vicksburg.

Took a picture of the cannon, Widow Blakely, at the Louisiana Circle as I drove by to leave.

A sparrow flew atop of one of several monuments at the Louisiana Circle.  Above is a monument dedicated to Louisiana ~ Captain Toby Hart, Company 8th Heavy Artillery Battalion.
