Shot this 8pt on Thursday, 12/27, at 9:35am. He came in investigating some other young bucks chasing three does. I grunted him into an opening and shot him at 60 yards. He weighed 165 pounds and was run down from chasing. 16 inch spread and 21 inch main beams. We estimated at 3.5 years old.

My son shot this buck at 8:20am chasing two does at 30 yards on December 9, 2011. This is his second good buck taken from the stand and third in the same area. We have not seen much chasing yet, but the bucks are scraping heavily. Dimensions: 17.5in inside spread, 22in main beams, 9in back tines, 4.5in bases. Rough scored 131 b&c.

12/29/10 West of Clinton
Dropped this 9 point this morning at 9:00 slipping through a thicker area behind me at approximately 60 yards. Measurements: 20 inch main beams, 4.25 inch bases, 12.5 inch inside spread, 9 inch back tine, 175 lbs. Hocks were dark and stunk and swollen neck. Bucks have been chasing the last few mornings but barely any deer movement in the evenings.

The Sunday (11/28/10) of Thanksgiving weekend my son, Paul, killed a heavy 11pt and doe in the same morning in East Feliciana Parish west of Clinton. While hunting a road along a ridge early that morning, he dropped a doe at 70 yards on the road around 7:30 am. A few minutes later a button buck came out to investigate and started light grunting. He then stared into the woods directly across from the downed doe, put its tail straight out, and ran to within 5 yards of the stand just within the woodline looking back down the road. A minute later a mom and two little ones stepped out on the road farther down to check out the situation. As the 3 does eased across the road , the 11pt stepped out directly across from the dead doe at 70 yards presenting a broadside shot. Paul made a good shot, and the buck ran 30 yards and crashed over a fallen tree. The buck, a main frame 8pt with a split G2 and split browtines, scored 128 with a 17.5 inch inside spread and 5 inch bases. Surprisingly, the buck (150 lbs) only weighed 40 lbs more than the doe (110 lbs).

Got several shooters on camera near Clinton, La in East Feliciana. One heavy 10 point that we have gotten pictures of for the last two years. The other two are a big velvet 8 point and a chocolate horned 8 point.

October 06, 2010 at 10:42am

Killed this 8 point at 10:30am on Friday, November 28. The deer weighed 175lbs, and was killed northwest of Clinton, La. Almost got down from my stand but decided to wait a couple more minutes and he walked out. Goes to show you to always stay on your stand as long as possible.

Once again the bucks have showed up to the rice bran. Had a couple of cool fighting pictures. Waiting to see if they show up in the day time. A total of 8 different rack deer, with four good ones. The pictures are of the biggest two and one of the fighting pictures.

November 06, 2008 at 8:50pm

Finally got a good buck in the daytime. The bucks really like rice bran. Also a big hog has been hanging around.

October 19, 2008 at 8:55pm

I'm posting this in response to Paulru's earlier post. The second image is of a crow taking flight. The image is from the Cuddeback website. The two birds look extremely similar.

October 16, 2008 at 6:34pm

My son killed his first deer with a crossbow at 25 yards from a ground blind on the afternoon of October 4.

October 07, 2008 at 8:39pm

These does were fighting over rice bran. Couple of bucks eating regular near my ground blind.

September 29, 2008 at 8:03pm

Checked the camera and had a lot of does, but no fawns yet. A couple of bucks including a nice 8pt. The millet really seems to attract the turkey.

Skull mount of my 9pt I killed last season. Done by Bucktail of Baton Rouge

July 17, 2008 at 3:12pm

Some bucks in velvet that have found the summer plots of peas and millet. Date and time is wrong.

June 28, 2008 at 8:44pm

Does anyone know of a good fish taxidermist in the Baton Rouge area? I would like to get a bass mounted and was wondering where to go and what it would cost. Thanks for any help.

June 04, 2008 at 11:33pm

I shot this 9pt within the last hour of the last afternoon of rifle season. Dropped this deer at 5:20pm walking out to a food plot. It was killed in East Feliciana northwest of Clinton on private property.

I hunt northwest of clinton and our sightings are down because we did some select logging and changed there travel routes.We saw deer early up to about the second week of december, since then very few.From then on its been all at night in our food plots, they are tearing it up and also chasing in the plots also we did manage to take two 8pts the first two weekends of december, thats when our rut starts.Also knocked down a 250lb boar and some does earlier .We have hogs but they travel in and out of our property.The acorn crop was huge and I think that hurt us because they do not have to move far to eat.We are still seeing some chasing for the secondary rut but you have to be lucky to be in the right place and time.

Try the Barnes X bullets and they will leave a
exit hole and bleed.Have made shots through both shoulders with no problem.They accurate and the bullet retention is incredible.I use them in small and large calibers and get the same results.
I know shot placement is the most important.Just my 2 cents and not bad mouthing other ammo.

A comment titled: TRAILCAM in response to a report titled: What's the best deer camera?

Been using Cuddebacks for many years and have no complaints.They are simple to use and they don't miss a beat.My son bought the moultrie m-100,the small one which is their top of the line camera.Took 2 sets of pics, now it doesn't work.It eats batteries,a piece of junk.

If you want a bullet for expansion and close to complete retention and always a pass through, try the Barnes triple shock,I use them in all my deer rifles.Forgot to mention they group great.
