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.

Busy Day On The Mighty MS

The American Eagle once again showed up today at our waterfront looking so regal as usual.  

On my way home I took a chance going by the Louisiana Circle and got lucky to see three towboats making their way up the Mississippi River, except for the small Ergon towboat.  Above the M/V Rusty Zeller heading for the bend in the river.

The Ergon towboat heading for the Port of Vicksburg.
