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.

Mack & Queen

Monday afternoon I drove by the Louisiana Circle to see if anything was going up or down the river.  I saw one headed north towards the bend in the MS River at Vicksburg and was able to get some pictures of a huge towboat pushing a large load of empty containers. After I got the pictures I wanted, I left to go back home. As I was crossing the bridge where the trains pass under near the river, I saw a huge ship coming out of the mouth of the Yazoo Diversion Canal and looked like a riverboat cruise ship.  I turned around and went back to the circle and took more pictures.  I hope you enjoy!

Big empty containers.

Trying to make the wide turn in the bend of the MS River.

Turning... comes the riverboat cruise boat at a fast clip.  Diamond Jacks Hotel/Casino far right.

She's headed towards the two bridges, old Hwy 80 and I-20, at Vicksburg, MS.

A little glarey trying to take a picture of her heading under the bridges.
