This deer was killed By Amanda Smith on January 13, 2018 in Avoyelles Parish around 5:45 in the afternoon. Senior Doug Anderson Jr. came to my home and validated the deer and the deer was green scored by WLF in the Pineville, La Office by Jonathan Bordelon. He green scored gross 240 and net 228. He will qualify for record book and B & C. And was also scored by Buckmaster and official score for buckmaster records is 249 2/8. He was a 'FREE RANGE' deer and there is absolutely 'NO' high fences any where around me. He was killed in Louisiana, in Avoyelles parish to be exact. He is totally legit considered a good kill with state of Louisiana and all. Waiting 60 day period so we can make scores official with state.

What a fantastic buck. I’m glad you clarified the story because when photo was first posted, it had zero details if I recall, and I can see how people would see a monster buck like that and just assume it was high fenced, escaped high fence, or killed out of State. Avoylles parish is producing some really fantastic bucks these days, but this one is in a class by itself. Congrats on a buck of a lifetime for her.

Why are you afraid that they want to write their own story from your interview? Are you a writer? I can't imagine a magazine allowing people to write their own story. It is their magazine.

What a deer of a lifetime! A huge congrats from all of us here at Louisiana Sportsman. I'm sure you must have misunderstood our editor, Pat Bonin, and one of our freelance writers, Glynn Harris, who also contacted you to get the story?
We wholeheartedly welcome you to write the story and send it to us. Of course, you would want us to edit the story to have it come out sounding great. Our writers and editors have spent their whole adult lives practicing their craft to be sure and get an accurate, entertaining and informative story - one that you can be proud of for the rest of your life. Your deer deserves that!
Of course, it would be easier for all of us to just have them call you and write your story about your deer - just like what we have been doing for the past 36 years.
Your call, your deer. Please contact Pat Bonin at patrickb@lasmag.com very soon if you would like to have your story appear in the next issue of the magazine.

On another note, we would also enjoy having you enter the deer contest at the Louisiana Sportsman Show in Gonzales at the Lamar Dixon Center March 15-18th. Dave Moreland will be there and can officially score your deer provided the official drying time has been reached. The show will have approximately 30,000 folks attend that I'm sure would love to see your deer.
See you at the show?
