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.

Lunch & Towboats @ Riverwalk Casino

Today I got invited out to eat lunch with some ladies at the Riverwalk Casino and of course had to carry my camera with me hoping to see a towboat or two pass by.  I got real lucky...not only were two towboats with barges sitting on the side parked to rest...I was able to get them passing by as we sat near a window. 

Could not get the name of this towboat parked.

Towboat pushing a barge coming down the Mississippi River.  Note the BUG looking in the window.

Looks like an ERGON working tugboat.

Heading home with traffic backed up working on Warrenton Road.

I drove by the Louisiana Circle and saw storm clouds building up over the MS River at Vicksburg.  We have a cold front coming through later today bringing rain that we really need.
