Louisiana Hunter Takes 226-Inch Buck That Escaped From a Deer Enclosure

December 02, 2011
Louisiana Hunter Takes 226-Inch Buck That Escaped From a Deer Enclosure - 15

Jacey Broussard doesn't hunt behind a high fence, but over Thanksgiving weekend she shot a pen-raised deer. This 226-inch buck escaped from a deer enclosure, crossed a river and ended up a mile and a half away on Broussard's father-in-law's 480-acre hunting property.

The buck started showing up on trail cameras and both Broussard and her father-in-law, Albert, zeroed in on him.

"He was my competitor," Jacey Broussard told the Louisiana Sportsman. "We both wanted to get this buck.

"Every moment that I wasn't at work or sleeping, I was in that stand trying to get (the buck)."

Eventually she saw the buck from her stand and at one point he got to within 10 yards, but Broussard never got a shot. Then on November 26 she packed a lunch and planned to stay out all day.

Finally the buck showed up and Broussard shot him at 15 yards with a 7mm Mag. While the buck has an incredible rack, he was only a 3 1/2 year old and weighed 160 pounds.

"I couldn't believe he was laying there," she said. "I was in shock. I was so excited."

I say the outfit that grew the deer should have made sure their investment was properly contained and couldn't possibly get out. congratulations to the hunter because after crossing a river, traveling a mile and living on its own and surviving for any period of time makes that deer wild enough for me.

good luck on the dear...but if you have 10-15 yard shots that you cant make, why the heck are you huntin with a 7 mag? sounds like 30-30 or 45-70 territory to me

I agree with the fact that she put in her time and downed a great buck. I'm hoping that for more trophies down the road, that he spread his seed first! That would be the icing on the cake! I'd also bet that the breeding farm has done some fencing upgrades! lol Congratulations!

Hogs are considered feral after ( 7 ) seven days in the Wild, also it should be a pen raised deer!

A 226 inch 3.5 year old....kinda makes you wonder what kind of "frankendeer" that place is raising and what is costs to "hunt" inside the fence and/or buy the sperm to "create" your own trophy deer...

I wonder how pi$$ed the owners are to have their "creation" killed for free.....lol...

I'd say congrats and the story is quite good. She put the time in and put the effort in to get the buck. So I'd say job well done!

I get the point stated above, but hey, it was an escapee. Give the young lady her due. It'd been out and free for a bit and she put the time in to close the deal. I'm sure we all know what can happen to your nerves when a big buck comes by. Keeping calm and taking that buck was an accomplishment.

We have become a hunting society fixated on inches of antlers. This is not a story for a hunting magizine. Farm raised deer given all sorts of enhancing products and bottle fed. Great deer, but not a great story.
