Deer Forecast 2002

Outdoor Life Online Editor

Last year's abundant mast crop hindered hunter success, but it provided deer with energy food for quality body weights and antlers for this fall. A 1611/8-inch buck was killed in Natchitoches Parish last season, a 1996/8-inch non-typical buck was taken in Red River Parish and a 1984/8-inch non-typical was harvested on Camp Beauregard WMA.
