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.

American Queen @ Vicksburg Waterfront

The American Queen was moored here all day in our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS, for their passengers to tour the Vicksburg National Military Park, Old Court House Museum, antebellum homes, churches, etc. The American Queen headed down the river at 5:00 this afternoon and the American Duchess will be here Friday.  When headed down river, the boats travel at 18 mph, which allows them to be here all day on Wednesdays. When headed up the river, they travel at 8 mph, which is why they are here for only a half day on Fridays. (River Level: 16.89 feet - Change: -0.29 foot - Flood Stage:  43 feet)
