The Atchafalaya Delta WMA runs synonymously with the name Ricky Aucoin, for few people have devoted as much time and energy towards being as consistently successful as he has there. In recent years on this bow-only public land, Ricky has harvested two 8-points, a 9-point, a 10-point, and an 11-point. The difficult access and cruel terrain of this deltaic marsh are not for the faint of heart, which has served Ricky well; it forces him to work harder in this complex environment. Some areas he’s also had success on include Sherburne, Thistlethwaite, & Attakapas WMAs, as well as Mandalay NWR.

Coming from an active childhood filled with competitive sports, deer hunting was a natural fit for Ricky. With the encouragement and guidance from his father, Raymond, he began the pursuit at age 24, learning everything he possibly could about deer hunting in a short amount of time. By age 30, Ricky had progressed on to bow hunting, which today occupies most of his time afield. Although his dedication to deer hunting is fierce, his life has always revolved around God and his family above all else. Many of Ricky’s best moments are spent with his favorite hunting partner, his Dad, who although no longer able to hunt due to knee problems, is still there to encourage, strategize, and congratulate Ricky on every kill, and then relive the story behind each hunt.
