Louisiana Whitetail Early Rut Action

john ledeaux deer 300x292 Louisiana Whitetail Early Rut ActionWhile some may think it’s early, it’s pretty obvious that the preliminary stages of the rut is starting up in parts of south Louisiana and not too uncommon for this area.  Johnathan (John) LeDoux took down this nice drop tine buck this past Saturday while hunting area 8 in Leblanc La. 

A not too shabby 16 7/8 inside spread with 5 1/2 to 6 inch brow tines and a 4 inch drop tine weighing in at 183 lbs. An awesome buck for these piny woods for sure.

Here’s John’s story as he told me about it:

“Scott this deer was killed in area 8 in Leblanc La. on opening day of muzzle load (primitive firearms) season, he was killed with a .444 caliber rifle. The morning started out great, at 7:45 I watched a doe to the left of my blind at about 200 yards.  At 8:04 a bigger doe caught my eye crossing the lane to my right at about 180 yards, I put the cross hairs on her but opted not to shoot. At 8:09 here comes big boy in the same spot, I got on him pretty quick as I had only a spit second to evaluate him and make a shot. I pulled the trigger but couldn’t tell if I hit him or not. I sat till 9 o’clock before I went to check for blood, only to be disappointed, no blood anywhere around, only the tracks where he crossed, not wanting to jump him up if I did wound him I went back to my blind and sat for another hour or so but seemed like eternity, then finally my buddy Jared Leblue showed up. We walked to the spot where I shot him and found nothing so we decided to make an area search through the woods when Jared came across a good blood trail which lead us another 50 or so yards to him.  We liked to lost it when we saw how big he was. Then we really lost it when we saw the drop tine.”
Thanks for sharing your story John and good luck for the rest of the season.

And don’t forget to take a kid outdoors

Eat Fast Lil Fella

While some areas of Louisiana have already opened up for Bow Hunting white tailed deer, my area won’t be opened until October 1st.  Bagging a nice buck would be nice but just the time away from work and the everyday rat race will be enjoyed just as well.

Opening weekend has always been about the outing, the cookouts, the smell of campfires and the company of good ol’ friends that make it all worth while for me. Bringing in a deer to camp, well that would be a nice bonus for sure.

 Wishing you all a happy and safe hunting season as always and please remember to take a kid outdoors.

After the Hunting Season

IMG 1327 300x224 After the Hunting SeasonNow is the time to enjoy your harvest.  Weather you hunt large game or small, if you’re successful your freezer will fill up quickly.  We live in such a fast paced world often times we overlook or don’t bother grabbing something from the freezer to thaw out for cooking.  We’re so busy and they have made it so easy to pick up fast food on the way home that sometimes we neglect our responsibility as hunters.  Slow down, we owe it to the game we hunt, don’t waste it.

Yesterday I went through my freezer and found a deer neck roast dated Oct. 2010.  My first thought was it may be freezer burnt.  I thawed it out and it was fine.  I always wrap my meat in Saran Wrap first then wax paper and it pays off. 

Once I got it completely thawed I marinated it overnight then cooked it.  It turned out to be one of the best I’ve ever done.  The finished product along with my recipe can be found here. campdogcajunseasoning.blogspot.com
