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.

The American Queen Back-In-Town Yesterday

Once again, the grand American Queen showed up yesterday in the Yazoo Diversion Canal for her passengers to tour our civil war town for a half day before heading north.  As always, she is a majestic site to behold every time she comes to visit us with her excited passengers.  

Actually, I was right on top of her sitting on the new benches and took... 

...two shots of her.  I was lucky to video her pushing off with her calliope playing as she headed for the MS River going north.

I took this picture across from the Queen and had my back to The Old Depot Museum before I went and sat down on the benches.

As you can see from my two previous posts that the flood waters are receding very fast behind the floodwall.

The Grand American Queen moored!

A nice gentleman took my picture beside the American Queen and I took several pictures for him as well with the Queen.
