American Queen For The Day!


The Grand American Queen back in town today!

Standing at the back of the Jesse Brent Lower Mississippi Valley Museum to take this picture.  

Picture of our "New" Farmers Market with a walkway and stage.  You can see an American Queen stops signs that are placed all around town for tourist to visit historical sights of interest. 


The American Queen at our waterfront for a full day of sightseeing for her passengers and will be leaving at 5:00 p.m. The American Queen buses take passengers around our historic town to tour the sites or they walk the hills of Vicksburg.  You can also see a mound of sand that has been placed at the Old Depot Museum with the anticipating rise of the MS River again.

Riverboats America & American Duchess Moored All Day!

Today, riverboats "America" and "American Duchess" were moored all day while their passengers toured our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, Mississippi.  To the right is the Jesse Brent Lower Mississippi River Museum and Interpretive Center.  You can also tour the towboat M/V Mississippi IV that is landlocked on site.

I took a picture of the children playing at Catfish Row Children's Art Park splash fountain on a sunny day that was in the mid-'80s.  A great way for the kiddies to cool off and have some fun in the sun.

Another angle from Catfish Row.  

Riverboats left the waterfront at 5:00 p.m. with "America" heading northbound and "American Duchess" southbound.

Attala County, MS Turkey Hunt On The Big Black River



The first deer camp I hunted was Jasper Bottom on the Big Black River in Claiborne County, Mississippi back in 1986.  I have seen and killed deer but had no luck turkey hunting.  While turkey hunting out of a deer stand, I did call two turkeys out of the woods into an opened field at 60 yards but could not get them to come any closer.  Of course, I would see the most turkeys while deer hunting in our great wild and wonderful Mississippi outdoors.  My congrats to the hunters!
