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.

Great Day For A Queenly Visit

Today, the luxurious American Queen showed up at our waterfront for a half-a-day.  It was a great day for her to visit our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS.   

The Yazoo Diversion Canal is very shallow but just enough space for the towboats passing through going to the Port of Vicksburg.

It was time for the American Queen to leave at 1:00 and had to back out of the canal because she did not have room to turn around.

A fisherman was getting his boat out of the water while she backed out.  A big round of applause from some of the passengers as they watched the fisherman load his boat on his trailer successfully. 

She's on her way out of the canal to the Mississippi River.  The river is very low now at 5.01 feet and a change of -0.35 foot with flood stage at 43 feet.

The American Queen will not be back to our hometown until November 8th from 8:00 to 5:00.  We look forward to her return!
