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 Paddle Wheeler Stayed Overnight

America moored overnight in my civil war town of Vicksburg, MS, this past Sunday, and Monday.  You can see M/V Deborah Miles getting ready to pass by America coming from the Port of Vicksburg in the Yazoo Diversion Canal and heading north to her destination.  

I turned around and took a picture of the Trustmark Building which houses a restaurant on the rooftop called, 10 South Rooftop Bar & Grill which is a great place to eat with a great view of the canal, Lake Claiborne and the MS River in the distance.  Also, gorgeous view of sunsets.

M/V Deborah Miles pushing an empty barge heading south and then north up the Mighty Mississippi River.  

America paddle wheeler was launched in 2016,

America spending the night with her passengers.  She will be back on Wednesday, November 29, 2017, with more passengers to tour our civil war town.
