Anna Kate, high school senior, learns hunting lessons well

This is a busy time of year for me with my assignment from LA Sportsman magazine to interview successful hunters and write stories about how they took trophy bucks. There has been little time to cover other matters regarding the outdoors as long as deer season is going on.

I ran across one story, though, that temporarily placed Louisiana’s big bucks and how they were taken on the back burner for a bit.

This is a deer story but it reached its peak, not in Louisiana but in Kansas. The subject of this story is a 17 year high school senior at Cedar Creek school in Ruston. The subject happens o be a young lady. Anna Kate Scriber, daughter of Ruston painting contractor and police juror, Glenn Scriber.

Jordan downs his biggest buck ever in Catahoula Parish

Twenty-eight year old Tyler Jordan works with Realtree, one of the world’s best known manufacturers of camouflage, a company started by his dad, Bill Jordan more than three decades ago.

Tyler works in marketing and video production for the company and has had the opportunity to deer hunt all over the country in states known for the production of big bucks. He has chased big bucks in states such as Montana, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Kansas, Iowa and Illinois and has taken some real trophies. Tyler had to come to Louisiana, however, to take his personal best buck.

‘If you had told me I’d get my biggest and highest scoring buck in Louisiana or any state in the deep south, I’d never have believed it,” said Jordan.

The Jena Giants made history this past Saturday although it may not be what you are thinking of. The Giants for the first time in school history played a football game in the month of December.

The Giants traveled to Hammond, Louisiana to take on the #6 Jewel Sumner Cowboys in the 2nd round of the Class 3A State Playoffs. The teams would meet on the campus of Southeastern Louisiana University at Strawberry Stadium.

The reason for the game being moved to Hammond was that Jewel Sumner’s football field was not in good enough condition to be played on. The Giants were perfectly fine with that as it has seemed like the Giants have played in mud for a majority of the season.
