Deer Hunting in Southwest Louisiana
eight point down
first deer of the season
Killed my first deer of the season this friday. i was hunting at a buddys land ner iowa la. I went out t oput some more feed around 11 am and jumped a doe and nice buck the weather was crazy 12-16 mph north wind as the front that we all wanted was moving in. I ran home and grabed a few things then headed back out to the stand around 330 pm. the wind was picking up and the temp was dropping there was a light mist. i put out a doe in estrus buck bomb settled in within 45 min i lightly grunted and hit my can a few times not five min later i heard a twig snap behind me thinking it was just the wind i slowley turned my head and to my suprise a buck was easing allong a scrape line.. the brush was preety thick but he gave me a shot thru a opening in a yopon bush.. it all happend preety fast i waited 10 min and climbed down when i approached him i saw he was 8 point but what really caught my eye was his left leg!! there was a huge knot on it and it could not be bent. he had broken it and it healed up like that. was thankful as always and glad to put him out of pain. walking out i jumped another nice buck that front really had the deer going crazy!
