the deer in old area 6, now area 9 did not rut at the usual time. we hunt near cow island lake. the rut usually happens the last few days of the year into the new year.
does anyone have a report (date) of rutting activity they observed this year in this area?

I shot a buck chasing a doe 2 days ago south of Whiskey bay. I saw a lot of rubbed up trees too.

In Lafourche parish we had one buck killed following and one chasing in mid December. That was the only activity seen by approximately 10 hunters. Unless it took place at night, it was pretty much non existant.

Terrebonne parish was pretty much the same, Friday before X-mas bucks with does, & then stopped. They also went more nocturnal when the cold weather hit.Rut was short & seemed to be mostly at night.They should be hitting the food plots now since the freeze killed alot of the vegatation in the woods. Hope everyone does a little management & not shoot does during the upcoming primative weapon season,does should be bred by now.The primitive weapon either sex should have been in Nov. & not at the end of season in Jan.
