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.

American Eagle's First Docking

So proud to have another paddlewheeler named the American Eagle to grace our historical town of Vicksburg, MS.  Yesterday was her very first time to dock here and show herself off.  What a beauty she is!  I made it down to the waterfront around 5:00 when the American Eagle was pulling away to continue the trip to the mouth of the MS River. (Seen here in the Yazoo Diversion Canal). I took a few pictures and made it to the MS Welcome Center to get her going under the bridges as she passed by.  I'm looking forward to her return in the near future loaded down with enthusiastic passengers. This is so great for tourism in my hometown of Vicksburg ~ The Key To The South! 

Cruising down south on the Mighty Mississippi River!
