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.

Rolling On The River

In the last two days we have had three paddle wheel cruise ships to grace our waterfront in my historical town of Vicksburg, MS. The "newest" ship the American Eagle came in Tuesday and today the American Queen the "largest riverboat ever built" and the Queen of the Mississippi docked.  I made a trip to town to take some pictures and visited with some of the passengers who were from Australia. The American Queen was leaving at 1:00 heading north to Tennessee and not sure what direction the Queen of the Mississippi was going.  We are so fortunate to have tourist to come from all over the world to see our civil war town of Vicksburg, The Key To The South!

The Queen of the Mississippi on the left and the American Queen today.

The Queen of the Mississippi docked at the Exit as I was coming down the hill to park.

The Queen of the Mississippi!

The American Queen!

Three buses are used to take tourist around our historical city and the hallowed grounds of the Vicksburg National Military Park.

The couple in blue are from Australia and getting ready to embark.
