Dec. 4 Area 9 Terrebonne Parish First deer hunt in the marsh this year. Had been hunting the swamp deer pretty hard, with out no luck. So got invited to Hunt the Marsh, they said the bucks were hot on the Does. Saw a big doe at 344 yards with A nice 7 point behind her. Watched for a while because the furthest shot I have ever made was 305 yds. So I was not the confident in shooting that far. Well it was less than a hour left to dark, so I talked myself into taking the shot. Held about 3 inches over his back and let him have it. Lost him with the shot and the does was gone as well. Thinking he just ran away, I still went check for blood, good thing he as standing next to a white maker on a bayou. So I drove the mud boat right to the area. He was dead as a door nail, never took one step.
Not a bad start for the year. Killed Nov. 22. In terrebone Parish. Aged at 4 1/2 years old
