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.

Supplies For M/V Miss Kris

I could barely see the towboat pushing the barge because it was so close to the Louisiana edge of the MS River at the Louisiana Circle on June 14, 2013.  
 
As I zoom in I was able to get the name of the towboat, M/V Miss Kris, of Marquette Transportation.

All of a sudden out of nowhere came this supply boat...

...heading for M/V Miss Kris!

This is how they get their supplies while traveling up and down the MS River.  My brother used to get the supplies ready for the boats when he worked at Ergon and called in their orders.   They can't get in a vehicle and drive to Wal-Mart like we do because their road is the mighty Mississippi and they get their supplies from the tug boats delivering goods.   

Here he is trying to line up/catch up with M/V Miss Kris!

Just about to pull along side to drop off the supplies.

Done!  Now they can continue on with their voyage.
