Ok

Yes just south of Ebro nw corner of steelfield and 79 -2000 acres .

There was a freakish big buck killed up Hwy.79 in Vernon ,tried to find a picture online but couldn't -hit by a car .
It let me know that there are some huge deer down here .

edit - looked at Jackson Cty. on google earth could place it in my mind - I know a guy from Mariana -lots of agriculture up there and very different from coastal florida .
I've been meaning to take a sunday drive up through that neck of the woods and hit sw Ga. & se AL. while I'm at it . Soonish .

I've lived outside Marianna. Peanut fields, cotton and some corn.

Killed a bunch of turkey there too.

Couple more from there. They were chasing hard right around the New Year.

Hey! That's pretty cool. It looked like the cost varied between the different academy's but it was reasonable for a guide and 3 hots.

We get some good ones closer to the coast than most think. This one was killed less than 5 mi. from the Gulf.

Yeah, I always get a chuckle out of those 'German shepherds are bigger than Florida deer' comments from people.

I know many have seen this one before, 225 pounds of Florida whitetail.

Thanks again all!!


Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

Well, not exactly, though it was Federal property. It was the CG station I was at. We had about 300 acres and a mile long, wooded fence line on the north that ran east/west. They ran the sheit out of that fence line.

Luckily it was only a 4 man station at the time and I was the only guy that hunted.

Found out about them by accident. I hunted almost 1k acres outside Selma, happened to go in one day at Noon and saw it advertised on a private school driveway.

The differences between the regions and deer in Alabama are often unknown, outside of those that have hunted many of them. Some areas of AL are like hunting FL, some like MS, some like GA, some like TN, and some areas are even like NC. Most places are some combination of all that, and so are the deer.

Fun place to hunt and the folks are very nice. We hunted early December and the deer movement was pretty limited. It was the kind of country where you expected a deer to step out at any time, but the action was very slow at that point in the season. It is my understanding that things really heat up around New Years Day.

Depends on what specific area, often down to the county. The rut and movement based on it can be up to nearly 3-months different, from one county to the next. Then you have the weather that can run from 80s to single digits, any day of the season to the next. LOL.
