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.

M/V Charles L. Strait Passing Hometown!

Yesterday, while on my way home I stopped by the Louisiana Circle and could see a towboat coming around the bend called Delta Point. Today, I found out that towboat captains are not very fond of Delta Point or the Mississippi River bridges at my hometown of Vicksburg, MS.  

I now have an app on my phone call "FINDSHIP" and was able to see the name of the towboat before it reached where I was standing.  Before I knew about the app I had to rely on my camera to zoom in and get the name.  (Click on pictures to enlarge)
