Got my buck!

This big guy went down at 9am this morning in Avoyelles Parish.

Nice 8pt with 17.5' inside spread. Might be 9pts, there's a small split brow tine.

The other pic was the instant he was shot. He jumped straight up into the air. The camera caught him coming down. His love interest is already 20yds away in the background.

Thanks, Mandevillian. The snow & ice had them moving all over the woods this morning. The heater in the camp quit working on me sometime last night and couldn't get it lit again before I headed to the stand, so I was thinking about getting off the stand early and going home, coming back this weekend. But this guy stepped at just at 9am.

Yep,got duck-hunt buddy screaming at me for NOT hitting my stand-just hard to endure cold-azz temps(when I duck hunt I am hunkered down in Chapman pirogue with huge palmetto branches blocking me and wind)and I am quite sure deer moving with this extreme cold.Might have to at least check game cam SD card!!Once again,congrats!!!

Lsufan71,Yep,ya got a point there but here is my rebuttal-I have seen ducks on EVERY hunt,have not always had chances at decent shots and true one deer would equate to lot more meat but dat aint de ways I looks at it-have decent deer lease have sat on stand at least 4 times-zero deer spotted-have seen more deer while duck hunting,seriously,but have til the 31st of this month,actually later if I hunt Area 9 so there is still some time!!Guess what-going after ducks tomorrow and hope to get on stand possibly early next week!!!Again,congrats on fine buck,think my club has killed maybe two deer with over 30 hunters,terrible results!!We have em,just are nocturnal as all get-out,game cam pics to document it!!

Mandevillian,never giving dem ducks an inch til de end!

Bunch of folks peeved at my posting about Big Branch and will refrain from exact posts til Season End but me and buddy did ok today with quality ducks and another buddy hunting about 3000 ft away came away with quality as well. NEVER have another hunter within close to 3000-5000 ft from me so not sure why some folks upset Dey probably hunting on top of each other their bad not mine. Gonna post at Season End but suffice to say I be happy,happy,happy.

Took some time today to run to Academy,harvest some fine palmetto branches for last 4 NShore Marsh hunts and got to my food plot,disappointed that the rye I scattered most likely got devoured by robins and doves and swapped out SD card on game cam and must have accidentally set camera for video and not such a bad deal as I have number of clips of hefty 8 pt chowing down on corn from feeder and problem is he is about as nocturnal as possible,never have shots or video evidence of him during day-time-might have to do last few days of bow season,hoping to catch him slipping up!!!Damn funnel on feeder cracked and corn and pellets were piled up.Guess I need to regroup for next deer season and hope to finish rest of duck season fairly strong,possibly nabbing a few trophy greenies in de process-have 5 mallards so far with 4 greenies!!

Every buck 8pts or better anywhere near my stand were nocturnal until the 2nd week of January. Saw several 6pts, fork horns, spikes, etc.
