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" Is Back-In-Town!

Yesterday, I drove down to the waterfront to take some pictures of the riverboat "America" that was moored in the Yazoo Diversion Canal.  Her passengers toured our historic civil war town from 8:00 to 6:00 and leaving northbound with a destination of Memphis, TN.   

"America" will not return until September 19th for another full day of touring.  The Grand "American Queen" will return next week since her last visit on June 29th and I'm looking forward to her arrival.  She has been cruising up north and southbound now on the Mighty Mississippi to return to my hometown of Vicksburg, MS on Wednesday, August 15th.
