Georgia Rut 2014
« on: October 28, 2014, 07:06:32 PM »
Well folks for most of us all over the country we're approaching that magical part of the season that all deer hunter wait for every year. The next two weeks should be prime time to be in the deer woods. You'll see some really fine mature bucks taken in the coming weeks. I've been in the woods from early September and seen a few small bucks and does but no really much rutting sign.

That all changed last weekend. We got a much needed rain and the temperatures dropped into the forty's at night. Almost over night the rutting activity started with increased buck rubs and alot of scrapes for the first time. Seen much more deer movement on camera's and now seeing numerous deer killed on the roads and highways.

From now until mid November if you got the time off you need to be in the woods as this is the time of year for deer hunters dreams are made of...best of luck to everyone this year, be safe and have fun!!!

It is that magical time of the year.  I am watching 5 mature does on my security cameras.  The past week they have become more active.  I am still waiting to see their boy frieds.  But its fun watching them on high quality cameras.

I'm taking my wife's boss to our lease this coming Wed. for 3 days of hunting.  This cold snap is certainly going to be the ticket!  We're planning on staying in the stands all day so, hopefully one or both of us will score!

Georgia Rut - 2018

Well in GA you can bet that the primary rut runs between the 28th of Oct to Nov 10 sometimes in between those dates....and you can bet the woods will be full of hunters from our club...

Each year in our club it seems like we all are retiring and there is nothing better than to start the day off with some of Split Toe's Coffee in the Cook Shack and then head to our favorite spot in the woods for 3 to 4 hours, sometimes 5 or 6, just depends on the number of deer we see.....last year my rut start on Nov 4th and ended on Nov 4th...saw 5 bucks then and let the first two go..the next three were shooters.....oh well, did not harvest any deer.....

So stay tuned for the GA Rut......

Just depend on which part of the state you hunt in. During the stocking program in Georgia back in the 50's deer were introduce into different part of Georgia from Kentucky, Wisconsin, Texas and North Carolina. In southwestern Georgia the rut will start in January. We hunt in the piedmont and have the Kentucky and Wisconsin introduction.
