This is one of the best seasons we had in a while. we hunt the swamps of Napoleonville. The season after they came out with the tagging system we went from seeing at least 1 deer per hunt to 1 deer every 10 hunts. Everyone in the area were slaughtering does. Not saying its bad to shoot does but when 15 hunters shoot 3 does a piece that puts a hurt on the heard. its starting to look like people....
this past weekend we went to the marsh to get some rabbits. we ended up with 60. the night came and we decided to go try and get some frogs. well good thing we went cause they were out. we ended up with 240. all big frogs we keep maybe 3 small frogs.
Shot another deer with my bow. Thats the second one in 3 days. Ishot a doe yesterday evening. Came about 20 yards from my stand. I hit it kind of in the front of the shoulder. Found good blood till a big ditch. I figured it crossed the ditch. It was getting late so i decided to come back in the morning. Went to go around the ditch to see if i could pick up some more blood and there she was.
My first bow kill ever. Got on stand at 5pm and shot at 5:40pm. It came 15 yards from the stand. shot it a little far front but it just cliped the lung. It ran about 70 to 80 yards thats where it laid to rest. I never knew bow hunting can be that exciting. My heart was just about to jump out of my chest. I hate to see if a big one would step out.
