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 Mary Parker Passing Riverfront Park

M/V Mary Parker passing near the Vicksburg Riverfront Park this afternoon on a very cloudy and rainy day!

Close-up view of M/V Mary Parker pushing her tow.

I could hear the M/V Mary Parker slowing down and ribbing up her motor.  

At the bridges...

...almost under the bridges!

Our U. S. Flag proudly waving in the breeze.

M/V Mary Parker clearing the bridges and on her way south to her destination.

A nice playground for the kiddies.

Mockingbird resting on one of the many seats at the park.

Looking up towards the Louisiana Circle where I take most of my pictures of towboats going up and down the Mighty Mississippi at Vicksburg.

Looking back towards the bend in the Mississippi River.

Sign at the Riverfront Park!
