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.

My Monday Walk

Yesterday was a perfect day for a walk in the Vicksburg National Military Park and as I was parking my truck I noticed the American Queen bus in the parking lot.  I haven't seen the American Queen in a very long time and knew where I had to go after my walk. 


I passed two ladies with their hands full of dogs.  They were so cute!  


I took a picture of the American Queen bus and continued on with my walk. 


When I looked back I saw the tourist walking to board the American Queen bus to go through the park.


After my walk I made it down to the waterfront and took a picture of the American Queen stacks.  The stacks lay down as they approach the bridges and then they raised them back up.  


The paddle wheel of the American Queen as it was turning.


A majestic full view of the American Queen!  As I was leaving the calliope started to play.  I just love the sound and you could hear it all over town.
