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.

Yesterday's River Traffic

After I left the Farmer's Market yesterday morning, I decided to drive by the Louisiana Circle on my way home.  As I turned into the circle I saw this big towboat making a turn in the bend of the MS River at Vicksburg.  

I was able to get this picture of another towboat out my truck window.  It was moving pretty fast going south.  

I got out of my truck and noticed that the big towboat had made it's turn and was following behind another towboat pushing containers.

I never could get a name on this M/V but it did have the name Blanco on the back end of it.  

Heading under the bridges at Vicksburg, MS.

Almost under the bridges now.

I turned back towards the bend in the river and it looks like the big towboat was trying to play catch-up!
