After a very slow start bowhunting at the Atchafalaya Delta, in which I did not see a deer, this morning I finally saw three does. Watched them for 45 minutes in fact. This afternoon I did a little better. This nice looking fella came by around 6:40 pm and I was fortunate enough to put him dowm in his tracks at 25 yards. I have never started a season off with an eight pointer before, in fact all the other racked bucks I have taken from the Delta were in Nov or Dec. This was a very pleasant surprise and on a 90 degree day---who would have expected that?
