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.

America Came To Town Today!

Children playing in the splash fountain at Catfish Row Children's Art Park!

You can barely see the America paddle wheeler in between the trees moored in the Yazoo Diversion Canal at Vicksburg, MS.

America came to town today bringing her passengers to tour our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS.  It is the eighth ship and the second brand-new vessel to be launched this year.  It is one of the finest Mississippi paddle wheeler ever built while introducing features never before seen on a Mississippi riverboat.  It also provides panoramic views of the passing scenery and holds only 185 guests so you can quickly make new friends.

This is as far north as she will cruise and will head southbound to New Orleans.
