re: Check out this buck's range - Mississippi Delta
I used to hunt close to that area and I always liked hunting in January because we would get so many of these free range bucks

re: Check out this buck's range - Mississippi Delta
I’ve hunted “the cutoff” behind Dow chemical quite a few times with a friend of mine. When I first met him(my friend) I asked him more than once, in disbelief, how he gets the same deer on camera year after year. He told me they swim the river TWICE a year. When the water comes up, they cross it. I have no clue how they know, but when the water goes down they come back. Dow doesn’t let the deer out of their facility so there’s no way they go in dow and come back, but I’ve seen on his cameras, the same deer year after year. I also know people who “photograph” bucks swimming the river regularly. Somehow the photographs look similar to the deer on their walls. But that’s another topic entirely.

Pretty cool after all that traveling, he spends the last three months in that one square mile.

Also, that buck wouldn't have to leave from there if they would #finishthepumps


Mid January stage at Steele bayou was like 80 ft. Pretty sure the pumps wouldn’t even be turned on at that level. So, no, the pumps wouldn’t have done anything for this deer.

Thanks for taking my comment literal and for taking the time research past river stages. But I just wanted to use #finishthepumps in a sentence. Which I’ve now gotten to do twice ;)

I was just curious after you said that, and I’d rather look up river stages than do actual work. I hope they #finishthepumps, too

Yet people will still swear culling free range bucks makes a difference


In my experience, hunters "cull" bucks as an excuse because they got excited when the deer gave them an opportunity. Shoot what ever you want to shoot and be proud of it, but habitat, nutrition, and age are FAR more important than genetics for free range whitetail.

Missouri buck travels 200 miles

I didn’t think deer covered that much ground but apparently some do.

Thank you for sharing.

He seems quite content in Louisiana for now, but watch for updates because we have a hunch he might swim back to the Mississippi for the fall.

We have the deer equivalent of gumbo here, and he has gotten a look of how the ladies dress. He doesnt need a job, so he aint coming back.

As soon as they make up some bogus B:C figures they’ll be right on it. Most of the affected acreage has been put in freaking WRP since they first started working the pumps. There’s so little farmland left, that the benefit just isn’t there.

I wonder how many the river kills on a % basis.


Sort of related... After the 10+ inches of rain the 3rd week of May, I counted 8 dead deer on Burbank Dr between Lee and Starring in Baton Rouge. I knew that there were deer in there, but for that many to be killed in such a short period, there has to be way more than I thought.
