Was the 2013 deer season one of the best ever?

The LDWF Big Game Harvest Survey that will be mailed out shortly should provide an answer — but from what this hunter saw, it was a great season!

As you may know, the Louisiana annual deer harvest has been on the decline for the past few years and the reported kill last year was low enough to make LDWF change the deer hunting areas and reduce either-sex seasons in some of these areas.

Coyotes, hogs, hurricane damage, the drought of 2010 and 2011, low hunter reporting of harvested deer, along with commercial forestry activities have been suggested as possible reasons for this decline.

And St. Landry’s Anthony Sharp is one of those Louisiana beaglers, and he’s part of at least three generations that have made running rabbits with hounds a family tradition.

“I have been rabbit hunting with beagles all my life,” the 34-year-old hunter said. “My grandfather hunted rabbits with beagles, as well as my father and uncles.”
