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.

Queen Of Mississippi Docked @ Vicksburg, MS

The Queen of the Mississippi showed up at our waterfront today with her passengers to spend the whole day touring our Civil War town of Vicksburg, MS.  Pictures were taken around 5:00 when most of the passengers were boarding to leave at 5:30 for more ports of call on the Mighty Mississippi River.  Tomorrow. the luxurious American Queen and America will be docked for a full day of touring our town as well  Tourism is so great for Vicksburg because we have so much to offer with the main attractions being the Vicksburg National Military Park/Cemetery/Battleground, Old Court House Museum, churches, antebellum homes and much more.  

I took this picture of the Queen of the Mississippi while departing.  You can also see some of the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals on the floodwall which is another unique attraction to our city by renowned artist Robert Dafford.
