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 On Halloween Day!

It was a sight to behold on this Halloween day with three riverboats at the waterfront in our hometown of Vicksburg, MS.  Here are a few pictures I took and hope you will enjoy.  

Riverboats Queen of the Mississippi and America moored in the Yazoo Diversion Canal with the Grand American Queen.  

A side view of the riverboat, "America."

Close-up of American Queen.

The American Queen was moored at the far end of the riverfront since she is so much larger than the other two riverboats. 

Queen of the MS, America and the American Queen moored at the riverfront which only happens once a year.  A real bonus with a tugboat in the distance heading to the Port of Vicksburg in the Yazoo Diversion Canal.

Before heading home I stopped by the Navy Circle and was able to catch a Kansas City Southern train crossing over the Mississippi River around 1:30 p.m.
