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.

Queen of the Mississippi First Visit For 2018

It was so nice to see the Queen of the Mississippi making her first trip to our historic civil war city today with her passengers.  She was here for a full day and moored at the end of the floodwall near the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals in the Yazoo Diversion Canal.  

I stepped behind the flood wall and could see a lot of debris from the flooding.

Where I'm standing, a week and a half ago this was underwater.

The entrance/exits are still closed with the prediction of the MS River rising again mid-April.

You can see the Queen of the Mississippi high over the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals.  Glad to see her return bringing passengers to our town for touring the Vicksburg National Military ParkOld Court House Museum and other historical attractions in Vicksburg.

River Level: 45.05 feet - Change: -1.08 foot - Flood Stage: 43 feet
