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 Thomas K Headed North

While I was out this afternoon around 3:00, I drove by the Louisiana Circle to see if a barge was coming.  I was in luck when I saw one coming under the bridges headed north.  I took a picture of the front end of the huge empty containers.

It was the M/V Thomas K pushing his big load.

It was a sunny afternoon and had to brighten up some of my pictures after I downloaded them.  They seem to turn out really dark when I take them at this time of day.  I much rather take pictures on a very cloudy day anytime.
