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.

Sandbar's Out!

I went by the Louisiana overlook this morning to see if there was any river traffic but it was pretty quiet. Here are a few pictures of the sandbar that is out on the Louisiana side.  The Mississippi River stage at Vicksburg since yesterday was 10.1 feet.  Fell: 1.2 foot.  Flood stage: 43 feet.

I remember when we were members of Brown's Point Hunting Club on Kings Point Island, we would ride our 3-wheeler and 4 wheeler on the sandbars near the camp during the summer months.  It was so much fun and now those days are gone forever.  Only have good memories to cherish the good times.

Riverfront Park on MS River

A train crossing the old Hwy 80 bridge into Louisiana.  Last weekend people were camping out near the pier on the sandbar.  Notice the buoy in the river.

It's a beautiful day in Vicksburg at the Mississippi River.
