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.

M/V Mississippi IV

Took this picture through a big window in the Lower Mississippi River Museum.

The Kitchen.  Did not think to take pictures of the living quarters and dinning area.

Making my way to the stern of the boat.

A huge spotlight.
Stern of the boat.

This is Rusty's Riverfront Grill across from the boat on our main street at 901 Washington Street.  Not everyday you see a huge boat dry-docked near your place of business.  Rusty's is a very popular place to go and eat in town.  You can check out or visit his site at: Rusty's at one time was just a few blocks south and down a hill in a log-styled cabin restaurant that later caught fire and burned down.  He relocated here and gradually fixed it up.  He is now in one of the hottest spots in town!

Landscaping still in progress in the parking lot.

Work also continues on the spiral staircase roof.

A barge coming down the Yazoo Diversion Canal headed to the Port Of Vicksburg which is very low.

A pilot on a Synergy towboat hoping not to meet anyone headed out.

The LMRM also features a model of the main Mississippi River channel.  Built by the Corps of Engineers Engineering and Research Development Center, ERDC, the model displays 80 miles of curves and bends from just south of Greenville, Mississippi to Vicksburg, Mississippi.  Visitors can walk along and even in the channel, learning about how the river and mainline levee system interact.
