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.

America's Return Visit To Historic Vicksburg

Today "America" showed up at our waterfront with her passengers again for a full day of sightseeing and touring our historical civil war town of Vicksburg, MS.

The Yazoo Diversion Canal has receded a lot since we were above flood stage for a couple of weeks or so with all the trees under water.  

You can barely see "America's" stacks but when the water was high a few weeks ago the paddle wheelers would be more than half way up over the floodwall.  

While walking through Catfish Row Children's Art Park near the waterfront, I saw this pretty magnolia blossom and took several pictures of it.  

Love this up close picture!
