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 American Queen Came To Town Today!

The luxurious American Queen, the grandest riverboat afloat, came to visit our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS again today.  This is her second trip this year and did not get a chance to go downtown to the waterfront to take pictures last Friday.  Of course, she is always a treat to see!

She will be coming back to visit with other riverboats during the year including the America, Louisiane, Queen of the Mississippi and American Duchess

It was a very cloudy day for her to show up but the weather was perfect for the passengers to tour our town on buses or decided to climb the hills of Vicksburg to visit 61 North Coffee House and the historic Biedenharn Coca-Cola Museum where the first Coca-Cola was bottled or just site see around town.  Her visit was short this time with only a half-a-day stay from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

I took this picture around 10:30 this morning docked at the waterfront in the Yazoo Diversion Canal off the Mississippi River while the passengers checked out my hometown.  So great to see so many riverboats coming to visit us!  Y'all come back ya hear!
