Weeks after many deer hunters in the Midwest and Northeast have packed away their gear for the year; Southern hunters are just starting to get fired up! The rut is a magical time to be in the deer woods, but it can also be one of the most frustrating and confusing times of the season for the Southern deer hunter.
Unlike their counterparts to the north, many Southern whitetail herds do not have the definitive “can’t miss two weeks.” One or two factors cannot be pointed out as the reason for this, but rather a multitude of influences including biology, photoperiod, genetics, weather and even herd demographics all play roles to determine timing of the Southern rut.
