This is a cool shot of the American Cruise Lines' Queen of the Mississippi passing under the U. S. 80 and Interstate 20 bridges, headed south towards Natchez. The paddewheeler is expected to return to the city tomorrow with 145 passengers. I would love to get a shot like this one day. You just have to know their schedule going south in this case and take the time to go to the Mississippi Welcome Center. The picture was in this past Saturday's, The Vicksburg Post and taken by Eli Baylis. Great shot Eli!
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.
