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 Jo Anne Stegbauer Passing Thru

This morning while I was out running errands...I took a chance going by the Louisiana Circle and was glad to see an empty towboat coming under the bridges headed north.  It was M/V Jo Anne Stegbauer!  

A pulled-out view with her tow.

If you look closely you can see that they have to climb up into the pilot house by a stairway and I've never seen a towboat built like this before.  

M/V Jo Anne Stegbauer heading for the bend in the MS River with her empty load on a very cloudy day.
