I had to make a trip to take care of some things for my step-mom yesterday who lives in Slagel,La where I am also in a lease that my dad ran for 17 years and where I own 25 acres of woods on the edge of that lease. Well on the morning of Nov. 20, I decided to make a quick morning hunt on the lease before heading home. After sitting and seeing nothing but squirrels I decided to walk on my property where my dad killed his last buck on Nov 24, 2012, a really nice 10 point. After getting to the spot where he killed his buck and reflecting on all the hunts he and I shared, I decided to walk a little further on the property. After about 50 yards I stopped to just take it all in and looked behind me and noticed a deer slipping through the dense woods. I could tell it was a really good buck and that he had no clue I was there. I picked a spot where he would cross and when he made it to that spot I rushed a shot and missed. He made about 3 steps and was looking around for where the shot came from. I gathered myself and picked the next spot that he would cross. This time when he stepped into the opening I took my time and the shot hit its mark. The buck ran 20 yards and pilled up. When I walked up on him I couldn’t believe that it was my biggest buck to date. I killed this 10 point (148 inches) within 100 yards of my dads last buck and with the same gun that my dad killed his with. A Remington Model 742 30-6 that he frequently called,”The Meat Getter”! The flood of emotions that came over me in those woods at that moment were overwhelming! I believe that the Lord and my dad were looking over me that day! It is a hunt that I will never forget! I miss my dad so much but it’s moments like this that let me know that he is with me every time I step into those piney woods of Slagel, La!

A comment titled: ROM in response to a report titled: info needed

capt killer,
My dad and I have been leasing land from ROM for 13 yrs in Vernon Parish. They are really easy to work with and are quick to guve you help. We recently aquired another 500 acres to add to the 2600 we have had for the 13 yrs. we've been with them. I would recommend them to anyone. I don't get to hunt with my dad but twice a year which is why I hunt mostly public land. To far of a drive to Leesville from BR for every weekend.

There's a guy off of Picnyville Rd off of Angola rd who has a trailer park. A lot of guys who hunt Tunica rent from him. I hear he's pretty reasonable. It's about 3 miles up on the left. Just across the Mississippi border
