James London, 49, of Wilson, took an 8-point buck during a morning hunt Jan. 18, the last day of rifle season in East Feliciana Parish.

London was hunting in Wilson when the buck crossed his path.

The buck weighed 225 pounds and its horns were 18 inches wide. London used his favorite rifle to take the buck — a Remington 308 Woods Master.

Wilson said he’s been hunting trophy deer for about 20 years.

“Anyone who knows me is aware that deer hunting is my passion,” London said.
