|11-year-old hunter takes down big 11-pointer in Claiborne Parish

As a toddler, Daisy Verdin was introduced to hunting when she accompanied her mom to their deer stand in north Claiborne Parish.
“I’d take her with me, and she had her own little chair she sat in,” her mom, Mandy, said. “She’d take her colors and coloring book and today, there is some of her ‘art’ on the walls of my stand from when she went with me.”
That early introduction to sitting in a deer stand and observing what went on out in the woods apparently had a far-reaching effect on the youngster, because on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 24, the 11-year-old sixth grader at Summerfield High School performed like a seasoned hunter when she calmly downed an impressive 11-point buck that scored 161 1/8 inches Boone and Crockett.

“I had seen this buck on camera all season long and had gotten pretty frustrated because he seemed to have a sixth sense. He seemed to know when I’d be hunting and when I wouldn’t,” Black said.
The hunter’s luck finally took a turn for the better on Nov. 23 when he left his bow at home, picked up his Weatherby 300 and climbed into his stand.†

When her husband and 20-year-old son decided to go and pull trail cam cards earlier this month on their 1,400-acre lease in Beauregard Parish, Mary Jones figured that would be a perfect opportunity to enjoy an afternoon hunt in her husband’s tripod stand.
“I had three possible places that I could go. Two of them were stands I usually hunt,” said Jones, 46, who works with her husband as a bookkeeper for his logging business. “My reasoning was we were passing right by it. It was the closest, and when I found out he wasn’t going, I was like, ‘Hey, let me sit in it.’”

Because all photos of the buck except one were made at night, Simolke dubbed him Nighttime Roamer.†

One shot from his 7 mm mag and the days of the old monarch teasing Simolke were over: he dropped in his tracks at the shot.†
