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.

Saving The Depot

The city workers and volunteers are busy sandbagging a 2-foot high wall around the Yazoo & MS Valley RR Depot yesterday. It houses a museum and offices of the Vicksburg Convention & Visitors Bureau and Vicksburg Main Street. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is providing a pump to remove water from the building's basement. Also, to the left a barrier has been erected to block Levee Street to keep the Vicksburg Murals on the flood wall dry. River level is 46.38 feet and flood stage is 43 feet. Flood prediction has been lowered from 52.5 feet to 52 feet in Vicksburg, MS.  A historical flooding was here in Vicksburg in 2011 of 57.1 feet.  (note last photo)

Three gates are closed now by the waterfront.
