As Louisiana's deer season winds down, some exciting stories of the conquest of trophy bucks continue to filter in. Most were taken on private hunting leases but a few came from wildlife management areas utilized by the public.
Brad Doughty, service technician for Poly Processing, got his big Christmas present one day late last month. On December 26, Doughty downed a big 11 point buck on Jackson Bienville wildlife management area. Taking such a quality buck on public land is common-place for the Downsville resident. He only deer hunts on public land, and with good reason.
