Hard to tell but pretty sure that is a turkey.

a few pictures from last year. Trying to get an idea of their age. I let these deer pass last year hoping to have some nice deer this year. I will be putting out the cameras today, usually out by now but storm delay held me up. any input would be apreciated.

A comment titled: lease in response to a report titled: Louisiana deer management

That is the one thing i do love about that area is the overall deer quality is diffenately there and with some help it could produce monster deer but i dont think that will happen too many shoot happy people around that area sometimes i get discouraged about letting nice bucks walk hoping they make it till next year...well good luck with the miss lease ..hate seeing people go out of state but i can see your point with the mosquitos,mud,etc let me know how you do this coming season.

some parts are low swamp but our property is mostly ridge we just started planting peas, clover, etc we still try not to make huge trials only what is necessary and i feel the same for shooting lanes only what is needed keeping everything as normal or should i say natural looking as possible seems to be a big help on non spooking deer. your hunting situation didnt sound like a good one so maybe it was a good thing to get out of there

A comment titled: grosse tete in response to a report titled: Louisiana deer management

yea i agree with you about body weight.. on the same note it is not unusual for us to see deer that 160-180 doe killed a few over the years...all in all starting to see improvements in deer antlers over the last 4 years and hoping it keeps getting better...let them 6 and 8 pt that are young walk next year you will be amazed... hopefully bordering properties will do the same between abundance of natural food and cover in the area it is just matter of time and everyone getting on the same page JD you no longer hunt in grosstete ? due to losing a lease?

okay i know exactly where you are talking about ... i know some bordering land owners close to them..( hoffmans, white city, smith..i'm a tab bit further ....Our major problem was cull bucks not being shot..this was changed last year and now i am very excited to see what happens... we have plenty does on camera year round but like you said JD a few nice 8 and 10s but always good number of cull bucks that walked years before but now we are 8 pt and 16 inch but any malformed rack or cow horn will be taken also this year...

A comment titled: dmap in response to a report titled: Louisiana deer management

I also hunt in grosse tete...I don't agree with taking huge number of does unless your deer population is showing nurishment problems but that is deffinately not the case where I am... I do beleive however that there is nothing wrong with sticking one or two does for the freezer each year. then go for the big boys. I know of a club that runs along hwy 386 that is dmap wondering if that is the one you are talking about.
