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 Riverboats Are Back In Town!

Today the Grand American Queen and America showed up at our waterfront with their passengers to visit and tour our Civil War town of Vicksburg, MS from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  You can see a walkway going down to the Catfish Row at Children's Art Park. Also, the floodwall with the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals painted by Robert Dafford.

I noticed this American Queen bus that may have been broken down.  Usually it's about 3 or 4 buses to take passengers to different historic locations in town. 

Went to the waterfront to see both of the riverboats up-close.

Different angle of America!

A towboat making it's way southbound in the Yazoo Diversion Canal with it's tow passing the American Queen and America riverboats.

My favorite picture of both while moored in the Yazoo Diversion Canal at the Vicksburg waterfront.
