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.

It Takes Two?

I drove by the Louisiana Circle this past Tuesday and caught two towboats together coming around the bend.  I waited until I could get a clear picture in front of me because of a huge tree that blocks part of the view.  M/V Claude R and M/V Mister Mac were heading southbound towards the bridges.  

I noticed that M/V Claude R was not pushing and M/V Mister Mac was doing all the work.  I decided to get in touch with a riverboat friend of mine on Facebook, Captain Reed Vonder Harr, and he told me that they are just transporting the extra boat to perhaps a shipyard for repairs or to pick up a northbound tow. 

Making their way southbound to their destination at the Vicksburg, MS river bridges.
