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.

Cross Ties Removal

The extension (cross ties) built to the Vicksburg's flood wall came down this past week in an effort to restart rail traffic that had been stopped for a month due to flooding.  It's also a truck route but for now trucks are still being re-routed through town. While the Yazoo & Mississippi Valley RR Station Depot is drying out and renovations have continued, construction has also resumed on the Motor Vessel Mississippi that is sitting on land right here in town.  It will be called the Lower MS River Museum and Riverfront Interpretive Center, and is partially shown in the background.
