Ok need a little help. Some trespassers vandalized my bushnel trail cam. The stole one battery and pulled the wires from the battery bank to the camera. Figured it would be an easy fix.
First try at fixing it failed. wires going to batteries was pulled off and broken. So I reconnected some of my own wire to the batteries and have the proper voltage at the end of my new wires. But when.... Read More
On the morning of December 21, 2013, I was currently hunting in Rocksprings Texas at my father-in-laws property called hog heaven ranch. At 8 AM I noticed a yearling doe coming across the lane where I was hunting. Shortly after I noticed another deer about 30 yards and when I put it in my scope I noticed it had big horns and they were stretching past the ears. I watched the deer following the.... Read More
Anyone ever seen this? This deer just showed up for the 1st time on camera in Feb. Some pics with horns and some without. But, notice his leg. The injury, circulatory problem, genetics? what yall think? I see no obvious scaring or breaks and other than the leg, the deer looks to be in pretty good shape. Where this deer is, is some really really steep terrain and he's climbing up and down.... Read More
Ok, lesson learned. Don\'t leave my 3D archery target up during the rut! Even if it is only 35 yards from my camp. Legs bent and broken, horn marks on side, rack broken, totally beat up! Poor old shooter buck, met his demise due to the misdirected jealous rage of a local buck! Got to love it!
How was your hunting season? I had another phenomenal season taking 1 hog and 2 does with bow first couple weeks. I let about 20 does pass after that then got a lucky break and killed a nice 17' wide buck stalking with bow in pure pine plantation. That was as good as it gets. I nailed another nice buck around 215 lbs two weeks before Christmas chasing a doe with my actual muzzleloader, when.... Read More
This fine buck was taken by Mike Graffia in St. Helena Parish. Mike had seen the buck four days earlier chasing a doe, but he could not get a shot on it. On Dec. 24th, at 7:25 the same buck stepped out onto Mike's shooting lane and his 7 mm Browning A-Bolt put the big boy down. The buck had an 18 1/2 inside spread, 5 1/4 base and weighed 160 lbs.
My neighbors shoot everything. I lease 40 acres in Allen Parish and to the north and south I have two clubs that are 'brown and down' and they hunt right on the edge of our property. I am wanting to grow big bucks but they keep shooting all my deer I am growing. We have strict rules where deer must be 12' wide and a 6 pt or better unless its a kid's first buck and they can shoot anything..... Read More

I know someone out there has been on a trip and.... Read More
Hey y'all! I am 17 years and I've been hunting for as long as I can remember. After three years of hunting hard at my lease Marksville, LA, I finally scored a trophy buck! On January 3, 2014 I was hunting on of my favorite spots watching a few small bucks chase does when this big boy stepped out! He was at about 150 yards and I decided to take the shot with my Kimber .308. He made it about 50.... Read More
My boy Zachary finally caught up to an 8pt. buck we nicknamed 'crabclaw'. The last picture we had of him was back in 10-22-13. Well he finally came out for a early morning snack of rice brand and hung around to long and daylight snuck-up on him and in Zach's cross hairs. Zach squeezed off his 7mm-08 and the buck ran about 40 yds. before expiring. It weighed 165 lbs., not too bad for an 8 pt..... Read More
