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 Is Back In Town!

Pictures I took from Catfish Row Children's Art Park today while four buses were loading and unloading passengers from the American Queen.

The catfish is the symbol for Catfish Row Children's Art Park.  Levee Street is also a truck route as you can see a truck trailer passing by.  It can get pretty tight/busy with the buses picking up and dropping off passengers after sightseeing and visiting the Vicksburg National Military Park.  

The Vicksburg Riverfront Murals and the American Queen smoke stacks peeking up over the floodwall.

Tourist checking out the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals by artist Robert Dafford's 32 life-like pictorial murals depicting periods of history in Vicksburg, MS.

I walked down to the edge of the waterfront today to take this picture of the grand American Queen in the Yazoo Diversion Canal and to see the largest riverboat ever built.  She will be coming almost every week bringing her passengers to tour our civil war town of Vicksburg - The Key To The South!
