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.

5:00 O'Clock Traffic Jam On The River

We had gabbed an ice cream and shake at McDonald's yesterday and headed to the overlook to see if there was any river traffic going by.  As I turned into the Louisiana Circle, I immediately saw the towboat, Hortense B. Ingram, of Ingram Barge Company, passing by.  Was able to zoom in and get a picture from our truck.  

As the M/V Hortense B. Ingram passes by I saw another towboat that had already rounded the bend in the MS River at Vicksburg going north. 

I did not noticed the other towboat in front of the M/V Hortense B. Ingram when I took the picture above.

I looked back towards the bridges and another towboat was making it way under the bridges.

Almost through...

It was M/V Bill Elmer passing through Vicksburg with its barge containers.

We hit it just right for the 5:00 O'Clock traffic jam!  

This little sparrow was sitting on a wooden barrier at the overlook taking it all in and not worried about anything!
