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.

Docking of America

Today, (Easter Sunday) AMERICA showed up at our waterfront with her passengers to tour our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS. 

Turning sideways to lineup to dock.

Coming towards the landing.

Crews getting the ropes ready to land and secure the riverboat.


Two crewmen jumped off to guide America towards the landing.

Trying to get things lined up to lower the walkway and securing the riverboat.

I left before America's walkway was down and was very interesting to see what was involved in landing/docking a riverboat in the Yazoo Diversion Canal.
