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 Queen Of The MS @ Waterfront

Yesterday, the riverboat Queen of the Mississippi was moored with her passengers to tour our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, Mississippi.

This picture was taken walking through the Children's Art Park at Catfish Row to get to the waterfront for a closer look.

The Queen of the Mississippi moored near the gage marks on the floodwall of past floods.

The Yazoo Diversion Canal flood waters are receding and will not be long before you can walk down to the lower part of the waterfront...maybe?

Up close of the beautiful Queen of the Mississippi!  Tomorrow the American Queen and American Duchess will be back.  On Sunday, the Queen of the Mississippi will return again.

River Level: 43.00 feet - Change: +0.13 foot - Flood Stage: 43 feet
Mississippi River is on the rise again.
