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.

"America" Riverboat With Curve Service!

Yesterday, the "America" riverboat showed up at our waterfront for a half-a-day of touring our historic civil war town of Vicksburg, MS.  This picture was taken from Catfish Row Children's Art Park. 

"America" at Levee Street ENTRANCE on the waterfront. 

Getting ready to walk across Levee Street to get a closer look. 

 Curve Service at the ENTRANCE!

"America" up-close!

"America" is a BIG riverboat!

Met an artist/banjo player from "America" by the name of Dan Knowles. 

Dan was painting his art work at the waterfront and asked him if I could take a picture of them.  We struck up a conversation and found out that he works for the American Queen Steamboat Company playing the banjo on the riverboats.  I told him how much I enjoy coming down to our waterfront to take pictures of the riverboats and posting them on Facebook.  We talked about being friends on social media and now we are!  A really nice gentleman and very talented playing his banjo in a band rolling up and down the Mighty Mississippi River! 

River level 47.09 feet with a change of +0.40 foot: Flood stage 43 feet. Should crest by tomorrow at 48 feet. Vicksburg: The Key To The South!
