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.

The Queen's Back In Town

I saw on Visit Vicksburg Facebook page that the American Queen was back in town.  I went downtown to the top of one of the parking lots to get this view of her docked at the city waterfront. I had planned to go behind the flood wall's after I left the parking lot but the entrance was all blocked off.  I can see why with all the tourist getting off to climb the hills to visit downtown or to go on a tour. It will be much safer for them all.     

One of the tour buses waiting to take passengers and passed one in town headed back to the ship loaded with tourist. It has American Queen written all over it like this ONE!

...and stacks!

She will leave town around 7:00 tonight and be back in Vicksburg on May 26, 2012.  She is always welcome here.  God Save the Queen and long may she reign!
