You won’t find it in the state hunting regulations booklet, but it’s widely known that the week after turkey season closes, another important season opens in Louisiana:
It’s Deer Stand Season!
That’s right. Now that turkey hunters are out of the woods, deer hunters rush to the woods to take a look at their deer stands, count the snakes living in and around them, spray for wasps and start figuring out where the deer camera they got for Christmas needs to be. And in many cases, it’s just time to bulldoze the old deer hideout and get a new one. Or even better, find a hot new spot where eight point bucks seem to be crossing every four hours. And if they have time left, the hunters in waiting might even go home and mow the grass at the house.
That’s what Peyton McKinnie and his partners are hoping to build on as they put up their Tiger Bend Outdoors business sign on their new deer stand factory at 2180 Hwy 143 in Linville. They will be building custom deer stands like the ones that have been making and developing a few more outdoor related products.
I’ve been hunting out of two Tiger Bend stands since I’ve moved to Union Parish.
