i think the weather might have had something to do with it. our main rut in the part of georgia my lease is usually right around Thanksgiving. with the secondary , beginning of December. This year it didn't really get cold until middle of December. Bucks were chasing hard, last week of the season (middle of January). probably gonna be seeing alot of spotted fawns come bow season in Sept. i think alot of does got bred late this year.

2009 will go down as the strangest hunting year I've ever seen. Rut dates were way late and deer became nocturnal overnight?? Just strange happenings.

I agree and would love to know why.

They haven't dropped them here either. I was always told mid February but not so here. I didn't get to check the cameras this weekend. I'm getting pics of about a dozen bucks with no horns dropped yet.

Actually Ron, there are several about 60-70 yards straight ahead and maybe 20 feet to the left of the camera. This is an old field grown up with some trash trees. I've been feeding corn here and it looks like the ground is about tore up emough and ready to sow some clover. :biggrin:

I talked to an outfitter from west-central KY a couple weeks ago and he said the deer there always shed in late March / early April. Kind of suprised me.

I think most of em here have shed by now, I got over a dozen antlers that I found anywhere from early Feb. up through a couple weeks ago. However I did see one buck still holding antlers about a week ago. Getting too late to find sheds though, all the spring growth is covering the ground so I can't see anything. :no:
