Pregnant Doe in Early August

I want to share this info as I just love monitoring my property along with the deer herd. Over the last 5 years I have put together that the majority of the Does on my property give birth around the 4th of July. If you backup 200 days that puts the peak of the rut around Mid-December in my area (Catahoula Parish). This big Doe is still carrying on August 8th and by the looks of it will give birth any day. Backing up 200 days puts her getting bred around January 21st on the 2nd rut. If you look at the “Louisiana Estimated Deer Breeding Periods” That the LDWLF puts out is dead on the mark for peak rut in my area. Collecting data every year and bouncing it off of the LDWF data they have can help tremendously when planning vacation time for hunting the rut.

I hunt Area 2 and our rut is always about 2nd week of Nov. This weekend I saw a doe and fawn and the fawn looked 30lbs and was covered in spots. Couldn't have been but a couple weeks old. I saw lots of other yearlings and the button bucks are pushing 70lbs. We had a lot of flooding last year and there seems to be alot of things different around our place.

I just leased some land around Glenmora. How’s the hunting in that area. I guess it’s really the location because I’ve heard it’s not that good but you also see some really nice bucks come out of there. How long have you hunted there? What’s your experience there? Thanks

Glenmora is a long way from Catahoula parish deer wise. I'm not sure about that area.
