Hammond hunter kills 16-point doe

Hammond's Jimmy Giacone was enjoying a morning hunt at a buddy's Mississippi lease Sunday (Nov. 20) when three deer stepped out.

“It’s one of those areas you kind of save until it’s needed,” Crochet said. “You don’t fun fish it; you just kind of save it until you need it.”

And he needed it. The young pro has struggled on the Bassmaster Elite Series trail the past two seasons, and without a win he would be sitting out his second straight Bassmaster Classic.

Instead, he jumped from sixth place to first in the Basin tournament to clinch his third Classic berth in four years.
