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.

Another Queenly Stop

Took this picture yesterday of the Queen of The Mississippi in town with a boatload of tourist to visit our fair and historical city.  A very hot an humid day in the low 90's but at least it was not raining on their parade. You can also see some of the beautiful Vicksburg Riverfront Murals on the floodwall.    

Tomorrow, June 14, is Flag Day and the Yazoo & Mississippi Valley Railroad Station is all patriotically decked out.  The building is home to the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau, Vicksburg Main Street and The Old Depot Museum.  In three weeks it will serve as a backdrop for music and fire works at the annual July 4 celebration.
