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.

Art Park @ Catfish Row & The Queen

I had to run to town today and while there I saw one of the buses that take the American Queen tourists around town to see the sites.  I decided to run down to the waterfront and take some pictures of her.  It is always a treat to take a picture of the American Queen docking at our waterfront especially on this beautiful cool Wednesday morning.  Above is a splash fountain for the youngsters to play at the Children's Art Park at Catfish Row. 

One of three American Queen buses that take tourists to the historical sites in and around Vicksburg.  

Took this picture from Catfish Row of the American Queen peeking up over the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals on the flood walls. 

The American Queen is so impressive and so regal at the same time.

It's time to get out and load up!

Took a picture of a small towboat pushing a larger container in the Yazoo Diversion Canal to the Port of Vicksburg before leaving.
