NE La Deer Season

Our farm heated up between Christmas and New Years.  The 10 point followed a small doe out at 9:20 AM.  I shot him with my 300 WBY Accumark at 140 yards with 180 grain BSTs.  145", 235 lbs.
On New Years Eve morning, this 8 point walked out, cruising for does.  I shot him at 150 yards with the same rifle.  138", 210 lbs.
We put this farm into a CRP and Cottonwood program 8 years ago.  We are starting to hold some mature bucks.  Most of our stands are on lanes in the trees or field edges.  I prepare to shoot to 500 yards.  The 300 really does the trick for this situation.

Wow! What a season! I know hunters who haven’t taken 2 deer like that in their lifetimes, much less 1 season...

Looks like you have a little piece of hunting heaven. What’s the details of your farm? Family owned or do you have a long standing relationship with the owner? How many acres to y’all have?
You cant catch a fish without a hook in the water....

Great bucks! I had no idea Louisiana produced big body deer.
If you are arguing with an idiot and someone passes by, they don't know who's the idiot.
