Deer Hunting in Louisiana
255 lb Red River Bruiser
My buddies and I made our bucks only trip to Red River this past week and never expected this to happen.
Blake and I setup 300 yds apart the day before in an area we were familiar with and hunted that afternoon over some fresh signs without any luck. The next morning we made the long trip to our stands to find them covered in ice. I was able to get about 20' in a tree with my Ol' Man over some fresh tracks. Around 8:45 I heard something making its way towards me behind my right shoulder, when I turned my head she stopped dead in her tracks and busted me. I slowly stood to face that direction as she ran off, and man was I glad I did because he was only about 10 seconds behind her. He stopped in the exact place she'd busted me (60-70 yds), only he was looking for her and not me. Without hesitation I drew my H&R .444 and squeezed. The shot felt good but he ran off like he wasn't touched. I climbed down to find the ground covered in blood, then 80 yards away there he was.
