Vicksburg, MS….The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Louisiana Field Office partnered with Warrior Hunts and the National Wild Turkey Federation to host the Fifth Annual Patriot Hunt on December 3, 2016 at Columbia Lock and Dam.
The hunts began Saturday morning with breakfast provided by volunteers. Breakfast was followed by a safety meeting to discuss the stands and shooting areas. Twelve hunters were then escorted to eight separate deer stands. At the conclusion of the morning hunt, four deer were harvested, including an 8-point. The rainy weather condition did not allow hunters to achieve many clean shots as the deer were moving through quickly and at far distances.
