Slidell hunter kills 155-inch buck on Thanksgiving hunt

Thomas Carbone is glad his family stayed true to its Thanksgiving tradition — big dinner at the family home in Slidell followed by naps, football and ….

“Then all the guys leave and go to our deer camp in Jefferson County up in Mississippi,” Carbone, 18, said. “We’ve always done it that way. It’s a tradition. Me, my dad (Tony Carbone) and my two grandfathers (Tommy Carbone and Jeff Volker), all went to the deer camp and the next morning I killed the biggest buck we’ve ever killed on the property.”
