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 Arrived Today

The American Queen came to our historical city today and parked herself right in front of the entrance to the waterfront.
Her smoke stacks peaking up over the Vicksburg Riverfront Murals at the flood wall.  

I had to walk to the other end of the waterfront to get a full picture of her majesty.

Walking right on up the red carpet!

Getting ready to head to the mouth of the MS River after she got turned around in the middle of the Yazoo Diversion Canal leaving right after 1:00 this afternoon going north.  

Picture taken from the Louisiana Circle heading north to Memphis, TN! She will return to Vicksburg, MS, on April 29, 2015.
