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.

The "America" Returns To Vicksburg

The "America" riverboat showed up yesterday at our waterfront in the Yazoo Diversion Canal with her passengers to tour our civil war town. It was a cloudless day with temps up to 87 degrees and a beautiful day to enjoy the historical sites. The American Queen will return Friday, Queen of The Mississippi, Tuesday, March 28 and both the America and American Queen, Wednesday, March 29.  It's great to have all the riverboats visiting our historic town of Vicksburg: The Key To The South!

The "America" is the second brand-new vessel of eight to be launch in 2016 by the American Cruise Lines in 2016.  This picture was taken between 4:30 and 5:00 when most passengers were already on board to leave Vicksburg at 5:30 for other ports of call on the Mississippi River.
