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.

Supplies For M/V David A. Lewis, Jr.

This past Monday I drove by the Louisiana Circle to see what was happening on the Mighty Mississippi at my hometown of Vicksburg.  Before I could reach the circle I saw a towboat coming under the bridges and as I pulled around to the circle there was a supply boat headed towards the towboat.  Here are a series of picture I took as the supply boat makes his delivery.  

Almost there!

Making his way to the towboat to deliver the goods.

In full view...

...the M/V David A. Lewis, Jr., passing by my hometown.  

A very large load...

...and another close-up shot!

Heading to the bend in the MS River going north with it's empty load of containers.

As I was leaving another supply boat was headed south with another M/V vessel making it's way north under the bridges.  A very busy day on the Mighty Mississippi!
