For many like Chad Hebert of Beauregard Parish, hunting has been a way of life since he was a boy.
With years of experience under his belt, nothing could have prepared him for his close brush with death on Sunday when he fought — unarmed — a deer while hunting with his young sons.
“It was the scariest situation I’ve ever been in,” Hebert said. “I just thought my life is over. This monster is just going to maul the mess out of me.”
