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 Linda Taylor Heading South

As I turned into the Lousiana Circle around 7:00 the sun was trying to peek through the clouds after raining all night and during the day.  I also saw a towboat coming around the bend and waited for it's arrival passing by Vicksburg.

Up close view of the M/V Linda Tayor.  You can see two men on the deck, one midway standing and another one on the back end spraying a water hose.

Heading south with her tow.  I knew I had remembered this towboat because last April 2012, I took a picture of her and when I looked up her name for a link on Dick's Towboat Gallery it was not listed.  I found out later that there was no pictures of her and sent my pictures in to the gallery and was published this past May.  I was so happy to help Dick out and also excited that he wanted to publish my pictures on his gallery site.  Thank you Dick!
