It seems like Alabama’s turning out some crazy stories recently about whitetail deer on both ends of the scale.
Just a few weeks ago we had this story about the giant buck hit by a truck. That happened northwest of Birmingham.
Now, Joe Ready of Tallassee, which is in central Alabama, has one of the most unique bucks we’ve ever seen. It’s a dwarf whitetail. He killed the deer while hunting over the weekend of Jan. 23-24. Alabama’s season runs through Jan. 31 in its North Zone and Feb. 10 in the South Zone.
Ready said the deer stands 25 inches at its height and is 44 inches from nose to tail. It’s one of the most unique deer we’ve ever seen.
From Deer & Deer Hunting Magazine, the 2016 Whitetails Wall Calendar features the work of deer researchers Wayne Laroche and Charlie Alsheimer, who reveal the 2016 whitetail rut prediction, based on years of lunar cycle research. Utilize this deer moon phase calendar to find out which days the deer will be seeking and chasing so you can time the rut for the best time to hunt.
