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.

Three Riverboats In Town This Week

Yesterday, riverboat "America" came to our hometown and today the "American Queen" and "Queen of the Mississippi" graced our civil war town of Vicksburg, MS with their passengers.  Above is a picture looking over the Catfish Row at Children's Art Park of the "American Queen."   

The Grand American Queen moored behind the beautiful Vicksburg Riverfront Murals.

An up-close picture of her smokestacks.

A full view of the Grand American Queen around noon today with the Queen of the Mississippi to the far right.

The "Queen of the Mississippi" was moored just below the "American Queen."
