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.

Takes Two To Tow

Was lucky to catch a towboat going up the Mississippi River this afternoon but more surprised to see two towboats pushing a large barge.  The one facing me was M/V Jeffboat and could not see the other name on the towboat.     

Took a pullout view of the two towboats getting ready to make the wide turn in the MS River at Vicksburg.  

As they were making their turn in the bend I was able to get the name of the other towboat, M/V Dennis Hendrix.  

An old rotten tree stump about to fall down at the Louisiana Circle with the Vicksburg Riverfront Park below and Diamond Jack's Casino in the background.  

There they go - M/V Dennis Hendrix and Jeffboat headed to their destination.
