I put in for the lottery gun hunt at Cocodrie reserve
in ferriday la. I spoke to the people at the main
office after the government shutdown was over and
they said the drawing was delayed. I have not been
able to get in touch with them to see if the drawing
has been done. Has anyone received notification
on there entry. Or does anyone know anything at all?
MY DAD CALLED ME AND SAID HE FELT LIKE THIS WOULD BE THE LAST YEAR ME AND HIM WOULD HAVE A CHANCE TO HUNT TOGETHER AND HE WANTED TO TAKE ME ON A NICE HUNT. SO, I TOLD HIM I WOULD DO WHAT I COULD IN FINDING A DECENT PLACE FOR US TO GO. LOOKING FOR PRETTY MUCH FOR SURE KILL. WE WENT TO BEAVER CREEK RANCH IN SOUTH EAST MISSOURI A FEW YEARS BACK AND IT WAS AWESOME. WE WANTED TO EXPLORE OTHER OPTIONS. IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANKS. DAVID H.
I am entering this deer for my wife even though its kinda late. I just feel like she deserves to have her deer seen by all. I was sitting in the stand with her when this deer came out. It was the biggest deer I had ever seen. The deal was that if a deer came out she would take it, well luck would have it that it was a wall hanger by anyones standards. She settled in on him with her single shot 270 and shot right over his back. I reloaded her gun, gave it back to her (which was even harder) and she shot again drilling him thru the shoulder. The deer sported a total of 17 pts and gross scored 132 inches. She told me after that, 'I understand now, go hunting baby all you can go' It was a memory I will never forget.
