No Deer
I hunt on Bayou Des Allemands and there is very few deer to be seen. Unusually low numbers this year.

hmmmmmmm
Absolutely. We have had numerous conversations about this. Im glad it is not just us. I hunt in Lake Verette, and we are not seeing what we normally do. They have even been camera shy. We have no water in our swamps. I think this is having negative effects on us. I would have thought with the low water in the spring that this would have been a good year. Curious to see if this thread continues.

WELL FED
With a bumper crop of acorns, low water and a pile of rice bran every few hundred yards there is no reason for deer to move. They are there its just that we are our own worst enemy.

feed
there is no doubt with everyone feeding thousands of stands the deer do not have to travel far to feed BUT the deer aren't going to the feed this year as in the past. Deer are there, there are tremendous amounts of deer roads in the swamp, tracks, scrapes and rubs but sightings are unusually low from previous years...especially the does.
What I'm seeing are a couple does, spikes or 1.5 yo bucks. Cameras are capturing good bucks at night just like any other year. The rut should be kicking off this week into next week IMO
