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 Mighty Mississippi Tour @ Vicksburg, MS

The Grand American Queen was here as part of a special three-week Mighty Mississippi tour that started in Minneapolis, MN and ends in New Orleans. They will pick up a new group and start back up the MS River. They will be back to my hometown of Vicksburg, MS, for half a day on Friday, September 9, then not back again until November.  Below are some pictures I took today at the waterfront of the Queen!

Well, you just never know, Gorges. I would love to take a ride on her but I guess we can dream can't we! :)
