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.

My Photo Published

Tight Squeeze:  Marian Love Phillips shot this photo of the American Queen passing between the two Mississippi River bridges in her hometown of Vicksburg. You are invited to submit your photos to share with The Vicksburg Post readers.  Simply email high resolution images in .jpg format to photos@vicksburgpost.com.

Yesterday, my picture was published in our hometown paper The Vicksburg Post.  I took it last Wednesday week of the majestic American Queen passing between the two bridges in Vicksburg, MS.  Her passengers had just spent the day touring our historical town.  She was on her way southbound to Natchez, MS.  It was a tight squeeze because the Mississippi River level was 42.24 feet and fell 0.23 foot with flood stage being 43 feet. I was happy to take another picture of the largest river steamboat ever built on the Mighty Mississippi River.

My humble thanks to The Vicksburg Post for publishing my photo!
