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.

A Navy Circle Treat

Yesterday while running errands I decided to go by the Navy Circle near the Mississippi Welcome Center at the bridges instead of the Louisiana Circle.  I hit it just right as towboats were busy on the Mississippi River at Vicksburg, MS.

Just as I pulled up this towboat was coming with a huge tow.

There was no name on this big towboat.  

Heading under the bridges while a small boat is seen near the embankment on the Louisiana side.

The General tugboat.

Another towboat was coming under the bridges pushing barges near the Louisiana embankment.

 As I looked towards the north here comes another working towboat.

It is the M/V Ann Elise
Coming and Going

Passing by Vicksburg, MS!

In the far distance you can see another towboat pushing an empty barge.  As I was leaving it looked like it was headed towards the Yazoo Diversion Canal going to the Port of Vicksburg.  Ameristar Casino is to the far right.
