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.

AQ Last Visit Until November

Yesterday, the American Queen came to our historical city of Vicksburg, MS, once again to drop off her passengers for a tour but this will be her last visit until November 10th. I was able to get downtown to take a few pictures before she departed at 1:00 p.m. On my way home I stopped by the Louisiana Circle to take one last picture of her as she headed northbound in the pouring down rain going to Memphis, TN.

Docked at the waterfront downtown, Vicksburg, MS, in the Yazoo Diversion Canal.

The American Queen peeking up over the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals on the floodwall. Notice on the murals below her stacks is a picture of the Sprague which was the largest steam stern wheel towboat ever built for inland river service.  She was launched in 1901 and went into service in 1902.  "Big Momma" as she was affectionately called, burned on May 15, 1974. 

At the Louisiana Circle and just coming out from the mouth of the Yazoo Diversion Canal.

There she goes in the pouring down rain northbound to Memphis, TN.
