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.

Half-A-Day Visit By The Grand American Queen

The Grand American Queen moored at our waterfront for a half-a-day of sightseeing for her passengers. Also, you can see Catfish Row Children's Art Park and splash fountain with the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals on the flood walls in my historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS.  

I placed a frame around The Grand American Queen for today!

Took this picture on top of a parking lot looking down at The American Queen getting ready to leave my hometown of Vicksburg, MS.  She will not be back until November 2nd to spend a whole day.

Customers at 10 South Rooftop Bar and Grill watching the American Queen leave the waterfront.  

The smoke stacks and the pilot house peeking through the tops of the trees heading south in the Yazoo Diversion Canal towards the Mississippi River to go northbound.

There she goes...

A closer look as she is northbound to MN.

Have a safe trip American Queen and we'll see you in November!
