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.

Navy Circle Pix Today

After having lunch with a girlfriend at Ameristar Casino today, I went by the Navy Circle to see if I could catch a towboat on the MS River.  As I made it to the top of the circle I saw a small supply boat making it's way towards the bridges. It's a pretty hot summer day in my hometown of Vicksburg and you could feel the heat!  Below are several pictures I took before I left for home.

Looks like the supply boat slowed down some.
