Deer Hunting in Northeast Louisiana
Tensas NWR Primitive hunt
Well, after a great weekend during the Thanksgiving lottery hunt where my hunting party of 5 saw 18 deer and killed five including 2 big bucks, the primitive weapons hunt this past weekend wasn't so deer friendly. My buddy did get a running shot at a really good buck, but his bullet appeared to hit a branch. I did not see a deer and the hot fresh deer sign that I saw a week before was old and not freshened up. There were 3 times as many hunters this weekend than last and I heard fewer shots. It seems that those deer were on lock down. I had a great time with temperatures holding at 30 degrees and the wind kicking making it feel well into the teens on Saturday. All in all, I guess I got some relaxation time. But hey that why its called hunting and not killing. Good Luck hunting and stay warm.
