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.

A Queenly Visit

Yesterday, the steamboat, American Queen, was in Vicksburg making a visit to my hometown.  She makes stops in Vicksburg on her way to New Orleans or from Memphis, TN.  Here are a few pictures I took yesterday afternoon while she was here.

Docked at the city waterfront near the Yazoo and Mississippi Valley RR Station.  The American Queen looks bigger than the building.

Zoomed in and got the American Queen bus headed to dropped off passengers from touring our Vicksburg National Military Park and antebellum homes.  You can see the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals from here.  

The American Queen from the Children's Art Park at Catfish Row.

The Yazoo Diversion Canal from the MS River at Vicksburg is very high because the MS River is a flood stage right now and some of the flood walls have been closed.

Three bus loads loading and unloading tourist passengers.

Playground for the kids at the Children's Art Park.
