Deer Hunting in Louisiana
Mulie buck in full rut: large neck, smelly hocks
Call this buck a dough.
Where's Dave Moreland when you need him.
Went to my place in North of Jonesville 12-21-07. About 5pm started seeing some does. This big "doe" comes in to the plot, nose to the ground and starts checking the 4 other does in the plot. The more I looked at this deer, the more I was convinced that it was a buck (mainly the burly head and general features). I had heard about "mulie bucks" a few years ago when I hunted on David Paulk's place in the Glade woods (Tensas), but had never seen one. Actually, I doubted they even existed. His instructions then were to shoot them on site as they will screw up the genetics. I digress. The deer then turns away from me and with the Ziess scope on 10X, I confirmed his manhood (scrotum, jewels, etc.). The mulie then goes back into the woods and I can't get a clear shot. I then used the bleat can and a six point comes out. He's not a shooter. The mulie then runs back into the plot, nose to the ground and gives me a broadside. The 7mmMag 150 grain Remington swift sirrocco finds its mark and it run 60 yds and folds over...and sure enough a mulie buck. It weighed 150#. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY HISTORY ON THIS THINGS.
