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.

Riverboat "America" Returns In Floodwaters

Yesterday, a couple sits and relaxes before the new benches go underwater.  The Yazoo Diversion Canal is rising from the flood waters of the Mighty Mississippi River.  Riverboat "America" showed up for a full day of passengers touring our historic city.

A close-up where you can see how near the water is at the base of the concrete pad.

The riverboat "America" moored behind The Old Depot Museum all day yesterday for the passengers to tour our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS.

The floodwaters are at the base of the floodwall near the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals.  

Behind me is the Mississippi Lower Mississippi River Museum with the M/V Mississippi IV that is dry docked here in Vicksburg.  It will not be going anywhere!

The picture was taken yesterday from Washington Street of "America" docked behind The Old Depot Museum. Today, the American Queen is moored for a full day of touring with her passengers and Friday, American Duchess will be here as well.  You have to LOVE all the riverboats coming to our river city!
