Deer Hunting in Outside Louisiana

This ladder step has been proped against this tree for 13 months. Look at the teeth marks on it. M
Finally made a deer hunt
Finally got my first deer hunt of the season in. This was before the cold front came through. Headed to a ladder stand near Coles creek.
Jumped up a number of deer on my walk in. Not long after being on stand a young three point comes by... 10 yrds max! Something past me got him skitish ... maybe squirrels or maybe a big buck but he stopped right near me and kept looking off in the direction he was headed but he wouldn't go any further. Finally he moves off in a different direction.
Short while later I hear deer about forty yards out. Same trail the buck came down. Tail is up as deer runs right and then away. Then a second deer runs back the way they came. I guess they smelled me but neither blew?????
Sighted my rifle in during lunch and it needed it. It was about 8 inches high and to the left about 4!
Evening hunt I lost a few games of chess that I was up early in on my phone and then let out a couple of choice words by accident. Thump thump thumb goes the deer. grrrrrrrr
Later closer to dark I see a deer way off on my neighbors land. Drive home.
Oh and jumped up deer on the walk in for the evening hunt as well. 3 in a group which I split up. Probably should have hunted right there as it was right by one of my stands. Might have caught them regrouping back where I scared them off. Oh well, I wanted to see everything first anyway.
