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.

Today's River Scenes

As I drove by the Louisiana Circle today I could see no towboats in site but this bird was sitting on top of a dead tree trunk and decided to take some pictures of it.  Right when I zoom in to get a closeup, it flew away.  It was taken out of the windshield of my GMC Sierra truck.

I love the colors of gray/white on the tree trunk matching the bird as a storm was approaching the city. 

I noticed this object in the MS River and at first I thought it was a tree trunk floating and when I zoom in I saw three guys out fishing, I presume.  The wind had picked up pretty good and did not know at the time that a barge was coming up the river under the bridges and they started to move over to the MS side of the embankment to avoid the waves.

These guys are nuts to be out there with the wind blowing like it was and a storm brewing.

 I would not be out there in a little boat like that!

You can barely see them in the MS River to the far left.

A nice pulled out shot of M/V Dan Javorski and how huge it was up against the small boat in the water!

Cool pics, Marian, as always!

I wonder if those guys in the boat weren't researchers from the state or some college. That gear on the front looks like the stuff we used to see on research boats back along the NC coast.

It did look like a rough day to be out on the open water, though. You'd have to be out there for work, not for fun.

Thanks Phillip for coming by and appreciate you liking my pics.

Yes, they could have been working - can't imagine being out there in that weather but storms can sometimes come up pretty suddenly. Then here comes the BIG towboat and they had to move over to the MS embankment. With the wind and the waves...that would make for a rocky boat! :)
