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.

Today's River Traffic

M/V Timothy C. Allen, M/V Keywoods and M/V Miss Kori coming under the bridges at Vicksburg, MS around 12:30 today.

Slowly coming through and it's enough room for everyone!

Took these pictures from my GMC truck at the Louisiana Circle.

M/V Maritime sneaking up on the east bank.

M/V Marquette Warrior coming under the bridges with a large load of empty barge containers.

A nice workday for a riverboat Captain on the Mighty Mississippi!

M/V Marquette Warrior up-close heading northbound while M/V Amy W. Bramlitt (not shown) was heading for the bridges from the rear.
