Beautiful deer castaway. I notice from your photo that Alabama is near the Equator as gravity there is sideways.

good comebacker...isn't it late in the season to still be shooting deer? When does the rut happen there?

Nice job putting some venison in the freezer! Sweet rifle as well!

Thanks for the congrats. A few years back, Alabama ended the season at the last of January. Hunters complained the rut was just cranking up in LA. In response, the state had a 10 day no hunt period in December but extended the season by 10 days. Lately, the 10 day recess has been rescinded and the season still goes through Feb to take advantage of the rut.
