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.

M/V Amy Gattle Northbound

M/V Amy Gattle making her way northbound with empty containers yesterday afternoon.  It is so nice to have an app called FINDSHIP on my phone so I know the name of the towboat coming. Before I would use my camera to zoom in to get the name and/or my phone to take pictures. 

A pulled-out shot.

Making her way just after passing the bridges to another hurtle...

...the bend at Delta Point which makes most Captains uneasy.

I knew you had a thing for riverboats of all types. I didn't know there was an app for it! lol

I don't know if you follow my blog or not, but many moons ago, I had a post on the few years (as a kid) that my paternal granddad lived on Neal's Island, in the Ohio River.

I do read your blog Gorges Smythe but must have missed that one about your granddad.

Yes, I found out about the app about month ago and love it. Of course, we have a slew of towboats passing by being on the Mighty MS and love to watch and take pix of them. One time I had one to blow his horn after I was waving frantically! Was so surprised that he even saw me way up on a hill at the Louisiana Circle where I go to take pix. That was a cool day for sure to have that to happen to me. :)
