Hunting in Central Louisiana
bear saying hello, glad my camera wasn't broken
Big Boar makes my most wanted list & friendly bear
Scouted all weekend for deer @ 3 Rivers and Red River taking advantage of the cold front. With perfect temperatures in the 50ís Sunday morning I walked 8 hours. I jumped 3 deer, 2 rabbits and startled some hogs which allowed me to creep into the 15 yard danger range. All of the deer sign was near temporarily unpressured field edges and water sources as usually in September. The woods are back to being very dry. Found a few key persimmon trees about to drop which Iíll focus my hunts soon. Unfortunately I didnít have any big buck pictures on my cameras, just small spikes, though I have several spots with a bunch of daylight action on the does and hogs. My cameras saved me from hunting my usual turf which I planned come October. I had 3 cameras in one area which didnít have any deer pictures after sitting nearly a month. Previous years had that spot loaded with bucks in September. That section is overrun with hogs. Speaking of hogs, I heard a loud grunting noise in the woods followed by pig squeals. Iíve only heard a pig with a grunt so ferocious a few times before in my life and I knew it was a big boy. Luckily after checking my camera in the area I got pics of this gianormous bore. Anyone wants to guess what that thing weighs? I canít wait to go stalk him and add those tusks to my collection. That big boy should be easy to spot. Got him fighting another hog in the picture. I love hearing those hogs tussle while hunting. Got a bear at that cam too. Just 3 more weeksÖ..I canít take it.
On a good note from the robbery from last week, I received an envelope in the mail this weekend with only my license in it which someone apparently found while cleaning their yard. Itís not much but a start in the right direction and saving a long wait at the dmv is always a plus!
