They have both hunted with me a few times. This is there first year shooting. I was worried about the scope hitting them in the eyes. Krissy got her doe at the end of Dec. 70 yds facing us. She said, \'I put it right on the white spot.\' Kasey got hers at 50 yds. Broad sided. Ran about 50 or 60 yds and fell in sight of us. Almost cut the heart in two. Another doe stepped out and she said, \'Let me shoot that one too.\' I had to tell her, \'No baby, we\'re are only allowed one doe and one buck a day.\' She wasn\'t disappointed. We got to teach them the laws while there young. I\'m proud of my baby girls.

My daughter killed her first one. She's a twin, so they've been taking turns. They are 14yrs old. When I asked her to give her sister a few extra chances, she was quiet. The next day, she told her sister 'Just because you haven't killed one yet, doesn't mean I have to stay home til you do. We are still taking turns' The doe was facing her at 70 yds right at dark. She said, 'I put it right on the white spot' The deer crumpled. I think I may have created a monster. They have been with me while hunting but this is their first year with there own gun.

Alright Guys, I need some help. I plan on hunting Loggy Bayou during the muzzleloader split. I'm gonna hunt it during the week. My plan is to take the 4 wheeler trail going furtherest north and crossing the waterway called Big Ditch and walking north a good ways after that. My question is, has anybody out there ever ventured in to this area and if so, are there trees fit for a climber? Thanks in advance.

Mid to North Tangipahoa Parish. I have been seeing deer on the roads relatively often lately.
1 to 2 at a time mostly. On my way home from work yesterday,in an area along the road that I always see a doe, I saw a brand new fawn. Just as shiny brown as could be, with spots as white as snow!!! Just laying down next to the woods.

30-06 vs 308.
Im an 06 guy but a friend of mine is looking to start deer hunting next year. He is down to one of the two choices.
My question is, compared to the 30-06, how much knock down does the 308 have and which one would you say shoots the flattest.

February 02, 2012 at 11:41am

308 vs 30-06, 30-06 vs 308.
I shoot a 30-06. To me, that is plenty of gun.
Friend, new to deer huntin, is buying a rifle.
He is down to these two choices.
308 would shoot flatter I expect but what about
knock down power?

I've been taking my twin 10 year old daughters deer hunting the last couple of years. I haven't let them shoot yet. I never told them they couldn't shoot either. 2 days ago, one of told me she wanted a gun. (makes a father proud) I had already been thinking about that for the last couple of years I told her. Everybody says 243. Some say 7mm 08. It's not the kick on the shoulder I'm worried about, its the scope on the eye. I'm scared to death of it hurting them. Does anyone have suggestions. Or stories, good and bad.

Can someone explain Area 1 early and late rut times? Is Early and Late for diffent portions of area 1? If so, where does Tensas or Franklin Parish fit? Or East Feliciana to Washington Parish? Exactly what is what. Thank in advance

Congratulations Gabe. You might have been bitten by the deer hunting bug now. Hunt hard growing up, before you get married, find a woman that can survive at least two hard hunted deer seasons before tieing the knot. GOOD JOB SON!!

A comment titled: H&R 270 in response to a report titled: H&R .270

I just borrowed an H&R 243 for my kids to shoot. If you notice when you open the gun, the ejector prong is recessed as a stop for the cartridge and also to eject the shell. As I put my shell in, I noticed the cartridge slipped right passed the ejector. I closed it the gun and opened it back up. Sure enough the ejector had made it's way to the proper place and the shell was ejected. Take a look at your ejector. It could be that it is slightly bent down wards. It will only take a little bit of pressure to put it back in place. That should fix the problem.

South of Husser on Hwy 445. But around 2 miles north of hwy 40 that goes to Global Wildlife. I'm sorry I don't have the telephone #. Left my phone at home today. But his name is Jerry. Does really good work. Knows his stuff. Prices are extremely reasonable. But he is a deer hunter. May be hard to get now. Sorry I didn't see this earlier.

Those are definitely babv cottonmouths. A mature female can have up to 10. I can't tell for sure by the picture. But the tip of the tail looks yellow. All babies I have seen have that.

You are right Grizz. If you go to the search box and typer in 'Bossier City Cougar' you will find an official story of a cougar sighting. This one can't be denied. I know a joke that describes the politicians we have in America. 'What happens when a politician takes Viagra?......He gets taller.'

A comment titled: Coastlines in response to a report titled: Florida does it right

We can definitely do without the trash on our coast line. But I'm sure it's a lot easier to keep a coast in shape if they only have a 1/4 of what we have. We don't have shiny white beaches. Never have. Our coasts are mostly used by sportsman (not outlaws) like you and me. Most all of the debris you see here is washed up from the gulf. If it was too clean, our coast would probably attract more recreational boaters and the beverages would follow. There are some that don't care. I have to believe our sportsman do their part, and keep their trash in their boats and vehicles until they can dispose of it properly. The thing is, to be fortunate enough to live in the sportsman paradise, we have it pretty good.

I once saw a frog actually leap up and catch a gray squirrel off of a stump. In a few minutes,
the frog came and put another acorn on the stump.

A comment titled: Dogs Shot in response to a report titled: Dogs shot

Some say, 'No way food is still being put out' Well guess what, Some people actually love there animals. Huntin dogs or not.
others are saying, 'Should have never knowingly went into a bad situation.' How do you know that is what happened.
Others have said, 'lining up the property line to run through to the other side to other legal hunting property' which is not true.
The list goes on.
I'm a deer hunter who doesn't dog hunt. The bottom line is, Someone that can do to a domestic animal what was done to these dogs, that person is a definite sociopath. And would do the same to a person if given the right opportunity.

He looks to be at least 4.5 yrs. Notice the sway of his back and the drop in his chest area. Probly 200 plus lbs. He might get another point or two next year.

A comment titled: Coming back to life. in response to a report titled: The Tommy boy buck!!!

Almost unheard of but believable. A buddy of mine shot an 8 pt. and got it all the way home. He went in the house and back out and it was standing up in the back of the truck. He was able to shoot it again. My uncle in law hit a yearling with his truck and brought it to my house because he didn't know what to do with it. When we got outside, the deer jumped out of his truck and never looked back. Gone in a flash. That was funny!!

A comment titled: Pregnant Does in response to a report titled: Deer Breeding Question

I have to disagree with your logic on whether or not you kill a doe before or after the rut is the same. Most hunters have a self quota and don't just shoot for the numbers. (I said most...)They already have a plan on how many does they will shoot each season. Therefore, a hunter planning on shooting them can do this before the rut and definitely not kill deer that would have been born in the future. If you have a plan to kill a few does, do it before the rut unless you are trying to cut down on deer numbers in your area.

A comment titled: Lease/Hunting blind rights in response to a report titled: POACHING!!!

Louisiana Criminal Trespass Law
LSA-R.S. 14:63
To Parkduck. My suggestion to you is, read the law. Basically, without written permission, you area in violation of Louisiana's trespassing laws. If you are in possession of a weapon, it is criminal trespassing. If you take an animal, the violations are compounded. Trespassing, criminal trespassing, poaching of ducks, (federal law) etc.
It's not worth the hastle if you don't want to risk loosing your right to posess a firearm and revocation of hunting privileges for several years.

A comment titled: More Day time deer action in response to a report titled: I NEED HELP

Only put out half as much corn as usual and let it run out befor putting more. You will start to notice on the pics more daytime activity. They should come back morning and before daylight looking for it. Once you get the time down, whether it be 3 or 4 days, or whatever, then hunt accordingly. As long as there is feed constantly there, they will be no need to search

A comment titled: Cougars in Louisiana in response to a report titled: Cougar Sighting

With all the deer study done by the states wildlife biologists, including Dave Moreland when he was the deer study leader, (still is as far as I'm concerned) with all the extensive research of when the exact timeing of fawning is gonna be and timeing of the rut is gonna take place and the time spent putting deer population numbers together, do you honestly believe the state doesn't or hasn't known anything about panthers or cougars being in the state. They have known it for years. An official word from them would spread like wild fire and maybe have every Tom, Dick and Harry on the prowl for one or scared to death to go into the woods.
