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.

A Hot Tuesday Tow

On our way after my husband's Doctors appointment we stopped by and got some ice cream at McDonald's and headed to the Louisiana Circle at the MS River.  As I pulled in I almost missed this towboat getting ready to make the turn in the bend.  I had an ice cone in one hand and a camera in the other!  Got some halfway decent pictures of the M/V Alix Anne Eckstein of Marquette Transportation with her empty tow in 100 degree temps.  It was a hot, steamy and humid day in Vicksburg, MS.   

Barely missed getting a picture of the M/V Alix Anne Eckstein of Marquette Transportation.

As you can see, NO ONE, was at the Vicksburg Riverfront Park.  It was just too hot to play.
