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 Back-In-Town

What a beautiful day for the American Queen and America riverboats to bring their passengers to tour our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS.  Six or seven buses were lined up taking tourist to historical sites in and around our city.    

"America"

Picture I took of both riverboats on Washington Street before I went down to the waterfront.

Smoke pouring out of the smokestack looking through the red caboose.

American Queen near the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals.  This particular mural depicts the Miss Mississippi Pageant that has been held here in my hometown for 60 years and the pageant will run from June 19 through 24 at the Vicksburg Convention Center.  Tickets for the Miss Mississippi competition was sold out a week and half ago.    

Electric carts taking passengers to and from the waiting buses. 

Another picture at a different angle in front of the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals.

American Queen riding high in the Yazoo Diversion Canal due to the Mississippi River being above flood stage.  River level today is 45.03 feet - change +0.34 foot - flood stage is 43 feet.
