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 O. H. Ingram Passing @ Vicksburg

You can almost find me everyday or so taking the Louisiana Circle to check out the MS River and the towboats passing through our beloved city.  I don't live far from the river so it makes it easy for me to swing by.  As I was approaching the circle I saw one coming under the bridges and it was a big towboat pushing barges/containers.

I'm posting this article for a former SFXA classmate of mine, Shirley, whom I saw today and we talked about our historical city and the love we have for our hometown and the riverboats.  These pictures were taken between 11:15 and 11:30 this beautiful Tuesday morning!

Got groceries and everybody is happy!
