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.

Riverboats Visits Hometown Today!

The American Queen and Queen of the Mississippi are in town all day with their passengers to tour our historic civil war town while moored in the Yazoo Diversion Canal.

A lot of activity today with 8 buses transporting the tourist to historical sites.

Yesterday afternoon, a towboat navigating south on the Mississippi struck the Old Highway 80 Bridge.  In the process, a total of 11 barges broke loose from the tug, but were later recovered.  No one was injured and the Old Highway 80 Bridge was reopened to rail traffic Tuesday evening.

FLOOD ALERT: River Level at 48.30 feet and changed at +0.01 foot. Flood Stage is 43 feet.
