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 Crimson Duke @ Delta Point

After leaving the waterfront and taking pictures of the grand American Queen, I headed for the Louisiana Circle.  As I was entering the circle I saw a towboat coming around the bend (Delta Point) at my hometown of Vicksburg, MS.  

Straightening up.

Almost in view...

...with a very large tow.

Looking at the bridges for the next hurtle.

M/V Crimson Duke making it's way toward the bridges which is another hazard for the pilots.   

He will make it and I'm sure breathing a lot easier.

Safe travels to M/V Crimson Duke southbound to New Orleans according to the app FINDSHIP!
