Indian Bayou Deer and Duck Hunt

W.W.H. Alumni were Treated to a Deer and Duck Hunt in Indian Bayou

Posted: January 27, 2020

Five W.W.H. Alumni were treated to a deer and duck hunt at Indian Bayou.

The deer hunt was sponsored by the Army Corps of Engineers and the duck hunt at North Farm was sponsored by the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.

The hunters stayed at the Torres Camp in Fordoche, Louisiana. The first day the hunters were welcomed at the camp, introduced to representatives from the Army Corps of Engineers and the L.D.W.F. Everyone was briefed on the upcoming hunts and dinner was served.

The next morning was an early wake-up as they had to drive a good distance to Indian Bayou. The hunters received a safety brief and were taken to their stands. Lunch was provided by the Army Corps of Engineers, a gumbo with potato salad!

When the sun finally set only one deer had been taken, but just about everyone saw deer and had a good time. That night L.S.U. played in the National Championship, and everyone stayed up to watch the game.

The following morning began early at 3:00 A.M. It was a slow moving bunch that got ready. The hunters then drove to North Farm and received their safety brief and blind assignments. The amount of birds that were seen was breath taking. Everyone shot ducks and even a goose was killed!

Upon return to the camp, everyone pitched in to clean the camp. Big hugs, handshakes, and quick stories were exchanged before everyone departed the grounds.

Special thanks to the guys at the Torres Camp, Army Corps of Engineers and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries for giving us the most amazing time and GEAUX TIGERS!
