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 Underway

I made it to our waterfront as the Grand American Queen was underway today but took a couple of pictures and a video of the calliope playing that I posted on my Facebook page.  

The Grand American Queen is heading south in the Yazoo Diversion Canal to the Mississippi River.  Most likely she turned around in the canal.  The AQ Captain decides how to get back to the river.  I have seen AQ back out because the canal was too low and/or go north to the Port of Vicksburg to turn around.  

I'm chasing the American Queen up the Mississippi River.  I'm at Waterview Casino's parking lot taking more pictures before she is on her way and out of sight.  

I zoomed in with my camera and got the American Queen heading up the MS River at Vicksburg, MS.

She has just passed some workers on the MS River to curb bank erosion.

Wishing the American Queen and her passenger's safe travels to all ports-of-call up the Mighty Mississippi River.  She will be back to Vicksburg next Wednesday for an all-day visit to our historic civil war town with more passengers.  Vicksburg:  The Key To The South!
