Default Deer Season

Who's ready? I know I am!!! Went to Cabela's last week and picked up a new bow case, got a couple new things to try out this year. I'm gonna try some of that "Throw & Grow" at my bow stand along with some "Deer Cane". I can't wait to pull the trigger on that first one this year, whether it's by bow or by gun.

I knew someone would come along and start this thread. God it's killing me. I've been burning up all my magazines and catalogs and it's driving me crazy.

That's the only reason I got a bow. This will be my first time hunting with one so I started practicing last week. I need to get the drawback weight adjusted a little though, I had it dropped down so I could get used to it and practice good form but now I needa pick it back up so I can get used to the full weight. I can't wait to get my 1st shot at a deer!

I have to have back surgery so I will miss most of bow season. SUCKS!!! I need to go and hang some new ladders and cut the fields one of these days. Nothing better than sitting in a tree stand!!! They are in trouble once gun season rolls around.

For those on here that are more into deer hunting than fishing be sure to go check out bayoubucks.com. Ross will back me up. Best site in Louisiana when it comes to anything hunting. Best group of guys you will ever meet also.

I am a little more excited about Deer hunting this year.

I mostly hunt Sherburne, but go to Clear Creek some. I just have never gotten use to hunting "Piney" woods.....love the swamp hunting.

Since Gustav went through the Atchafalaya area, the hunting has been tuff there. Lots and lots of trees and tree tops on the ground make it hard to walk and once I find a tree to climb, there is not very good visability.

Got luck last season and spotted a doe that was "sneeking" past me and got a shot with my rifle. If she has taken 2 more steps, I probably would not have seen her or been able to take a shot.

Bowhunting last season......deer never came close enough in an open spot to take a shot.

Here is what happens when they come too close.........some of you have seen these pic. before. I just noticed....I put the wrong year in the picture, it was killed in 2008.

We are doing a big group hunt at Clear Creek September 18 with about 30 guys so far. If you are interested sign up at bayoubucks and you can get all the info if you want to go. I've never been there but im going to give it a try.
