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.

The Queen Is Back In Town

Today the grand American Queen came to my hometown of Vicksburg, MS, for a visit and will be coming back every Wednesday for a couple of months which will be great for our tourism.  

The view overlooking the Catfish Row Children's Art Park

As I walked down to the waterfront I saw a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers towboat pushing a boat passing the American Queen and headed for the MS River.

Up-close picture of the American Queen.

Had to get near the Exit to the waterfront to get this picture with my cell-phone.  It is a majestic steamboat!
