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.

America & American Queen In Town For A Full Day!

Last Friday when I came to the waterfront the city employees were opening up the Exit because the water had receded from the flooding.  Today, when I went to the waterfront both the Entrance/Exits, were opened and I was able to take pictures of both riverboats, America and the American Queen, while their passengers toured our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS.

America and the American Queen.

It's great to see the flood waters receding from the Yazoo Diversion Canal so we can walk at the waterfront.  

The Mississippi River is on the rise again but should hold steady at 43 feet by April 16th.  

Riverboat, "America."

Riverboat, the Grand American Queen.

The American Queen is moored directly across from the Catfish Row at Children's Art Park.  She is riding high over the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals on the floodwall.

River Level: 42.21 feet - Change: +0.07 foot - Flood Stage: 43 feet
