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.

MS River @ Vicksburg On The Rise


The Yazoo Diversion canal is slowly rising at the Vicksburg waterfront from the MS River.  Most of this will be underwater before long.  


The riverboat American Queen will moor here this Friday and return again on Friday, March 9th.  


Water is slowly creeping up the steps at the Vicksburg waterfront yesterday which will soon be all underwater from the canal.


Railroad tracks near the canal.  


Nice benches to sit and enjoy the view.  


I hope the new benches don't go underwater...but its possible.

In my hometown of Vicksburg, MS the MS River is expected to crest at 49.5 feet by March 24 and our city is preparing for the flood.  The river was at 36.29 feet Saturday and predicted to be at 40.9 by Wednesday.  The flood stage at Vicksburg is 43 feet.
