I would've never believed it had I not seen it in person. Alabama indeed has the weirdest rut in the whitetail world. I hunted with a buddy in AL in late Jan, 2009. He was telling me the timing of my visit was perfect because the rut was at its peak. I didn't want to call him a liar, so I just smiled, kept my comments to myself, and went along with what he said. He did invite me to hunt his place after all. Sure enough, when we went out that first morning, there were fresh scrapes everywhere and bucks chasing does like crazy. Damnedest thing I ever saw! He assured me this was the norm. He also had some hunting property about 50 miles east of that place, and he said the rut peaked in Dec. there!

For real? No [bleep]. Nobody in this thread is disputing that.

Simple question. I have been on the properties noted in the southeast corner for 30 years. The two properties are approximately 35 miles apart. On one the rut always starts late January into February. BTW, I LIVE on this property and have taken over 10 good bucks during that time. The rut on the other property starts early to mid December. My good friend LIVES on this property. Its a large property and over 100 bucks easy during this time. Every single year, bar none, the rut is 45+/- days apart on these two properties. Do you say this is not the case, that this is not happening? That me, and everyone else down here in this corner of Alabama is wrong?

A had a good friend that lived on the other side of the river in Georgia and deer there were hard into rut around Halloween.

I have lived and hunted in Alabama my whole 54 year life. That map is pretty spot on. I am hunting in the southern half of Wilcox County and the Northern part of Monroe County. Our rut doesn't kick in until late January.

And no I am not seeing a secondary rut for does that didn't get bred the first go round. We see no bucks chasing does earlier than mid to late January. There is no increase in scrapes and rubs until mid to late January. And if that isn't enough for the doubters a study of the does in this area by wildlife biologists determined that the "AVERAGE" time of conception for the does in this area was about the first week of February.

By contrast I have friends and family who live and hunt in other parts of the state where the rut is totally over by the start of January.

This Sitka blowhard talks about laughing at such claims. Here's what I find funny. People who have never stepped foot in, much less hunted, a state trying to lecture the people who have hunted that state for generations on how the deer behave there. Now that's some funny s#$t.

While I’d find nits to pick with their exact lines vs dates in the NE part of the state, it’s pretty close to my experience over the decades....the hodge-podge rut in Alabama has been a fact, long before I ever got to go on my first deer AL hunt in ‘81. You can go a county over and have it 30-45 days apart, or to the other end of the state, and it be at the same exact peak times.

Exactly. I've seen a 40 day difference in different parts of the same county.

In the 2015-2016 season I killed a monster 11 pt in Schley County Ga on Halloween as he cruised for does, then in Eastern Henry County AL on Dec 16th I killed my biggest whitetail ever checking scrapes, and then in late January in Western Henry County AL I killed a 10 pt chasing a doe. SE AL is a good place to live for a whitetail hunter indeed.
