HALLOWEEN TREAT: Marian Ann Love submitted this photo of three riverboats - the Queen of the Mississippi, America and American Queen - docked at the Vicksburg riverfront Wednesday.
I was pleasantly surprised that my picture of the three riverboats (an event that happens once a year so far) was published "in color" in our hometown paper, The Vicksburg Post. I've only had one other picture in color and that was a sunset on the front page! This did make page 2 and what a Halloween treat for our city of Vicksburg, MS. Many thanks to our paper today who found it worthy for publication.
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.
