Kevin is at our lease in Georgia when he runs across one of our many Eastern Indigo snakes. These things are beautiful and harmless unless you are another snake!
Well, I know that deer season in some states are pretty close to starting and here in Alabama we are about 45 days away from hitting the woods with the Elites. But before that gets here, now is the time to let the Antler King attractant and the Covert cameras go to work.
The bucks are pretty close to being finished growing their antlers and now is the time to get an inventory on which bucks stuck around from last year and also to see if any new ones have shown up. Plus, it’s a good time to try and pattern those bachelor groups so you’ll be ready when opening day gets here to try and connect with one of those early season bucks.
I don’t know about you, but I’m just like a 44 year old kid on Christmas morning every time I go to check cameras and can’t wait to see what the Coverts captured.

Our buddy Anthony Dixon tells the story of his beast double droptine muley and then the hunt.
With Alabama’s deer season now over, there are a mix of emotions. It’s very much different from the rest of the country because our rut is just now kicking really good. This is the time that we constantly are checking the cameras to see if any new bucks are showing up and trying to figure out where to hunt the last few days to have the best chance at seeing one of those rutting bucks. It never fails that a couple of real good bucks will always show up this time of year and send everyone in a panic and make us start second guessing where we sit. But that is all part of the fun that goes along with trying to outsmart one of those big ol’ whitetail bucks. The only bad thing about it is the hunting part of this game ends for us next week but the strategies are pretty much a year round thing. But for now it’s back to check some more cameras and staring at the map to find the best last minute spot.
