Big Buck Photo Contest in Southeast Louisiana
I killed this deer on Saturday December 7 at 430 pm. We have had pictures of this deer on our cameras for the last couple of months, and all were at night. When reviewing this deer on camera we expected he would score in the mid 120's. Luckily however there was no ground shrinkage and we had underestimated him quite a bit. The deer ended up scoring 136 3/8 inches with mass measurements of over 5 inches at the bases. This made the deer my personal best buck by a couple of inches score wise, but he was by far the biggest bodied deer I have taken. This has been a great season for my fiance' and I, with both of us taking our personal best deer in the last two weeks from the same property. And judging by this deer it appears the pre-rut activity is picking up in West Feliciana. The buck had started to smell and his neck measured 22 inches around at the jaw and 30 inches at the base. Killed him cruising in a small food plot back in the woods off of a large green field.
