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.

Two Queenly Visits

I had to run an errand to town to pick up some medicine at the drug store this afternoon and I'm so glad I grabbed my camera on the way out.  Usually the steamboats dock on a Tuesday and I was so happy to see them back in town.  You could see a lot of tourists walking around downtown and also taking bus tours to sites around Vicksburg.  Here are a few pictures that I took today that you might enjoy looking at.  

 Queen of the Mississippi

Boat making it's way pass the American Queen for some fun in the sun and the Yazoo River!

Another boat coming in and one heading out into the Yazoo Diversion Canal off the Mississippi River at Vicksburg, MS.

One of three buses taking tourist to sites in and around Vicksburg, MS.   

You can see the American Queen docked at the waterfront near the Yazoo & Mississippi Valley R.R. Station.  The old depot museum features the world's largest collection of WBTS ship models and a collection of riverboat models and Naval vessels with Mississippi names.  Also the offices of Vicksburg Tourism.
