North Louisiana Buck

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Took my Marlin 30-30 for a little walk in the woods this morning and she did what she was supposed to. About 9am I saw a large deer moving away from me at about 175 yards in some tall grass. I thought I saw some horns on the deer but could not be sure. By the time I got my rifle up the deer had disappeared in the high brush. I started blowing a bunch of short grunts on my grunt call. Several minutes later the deer appeared in a small opening about 100 yards away, headed straight for me. The opening was small and I didn't have much time so I took a quick offhand shot. I heard the bullet hit and the deer sort of hunkered up. I worked the lever and put another 150 grain Hornady right behind the shoulder. The deer went down this time. I dropped my pack and shed my insulated jacket and started through the thick brush to where the deer had fallen. When I found it, I discovered it was a very large bodied three point. It took my about 30 minutes to drag that large buck to the clearing where I could get it with my truck. Attached is a picture of the buck and my Marlin.

Good shooting jodum; that one should be some fine eating. The last day of my deer season was today with me stuck at work, and the only reason I'm not gnashing my teeth is that I have two caribou and 1/3 of a cow elk in the freezer, with plans for some jerky out of them. How are you going to part your deer out - steaks, burger, jerky?

I am having the deer cut into steaks and ground meat. Our local processor runs the steaks thru a tenderizer which really make it tender. I envy your caribou. I ate some caribou at a game feast at church. It was really good. My hunting buddy took a bite of caribou and looked at me and said "We gotta go kill one of these!" I hope to retire in about a year and go on a Canadian caribou hunt.

Congrats on the deer! My son & I are going out this weekend to try to put some venison in the freezer.
My idea of fast food is a Pronghorn Antelope.
