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.

A Busy Waterfront In Vicksburg, Mississippi

Yesterday I made it downtown to the waterfront to find not only the Grand American Queen but the Queen of the Mississippi and Corps of Engineers, M/V William James, moored.  

The American Queen between the trees.

High black smoke stakes peeking though the trees.

The Corps of Engineers M/V William James also moored at the waterfront.  

It's time for passengers to board and leave Vicksburg after a day of enjoying our civil war town of hallowed ground.

It's just enough room to squeeze in!  

Taken by my Facebook friend, Joyce Morrell Shinn, who was dining at 10 South Rooftop Bar and Grill.  She got this awesome shot of the American Queen moored in the Yazoo Diversion Canal with Lake Centennial in the background.
