ALABAMA

Deer Forecast 2002

Outdoor Life Online Editor

Alabama has been in a drought for two years, and while drought may reduce mast crops, which is not a good thing for deer, it can make animals more reliant on food plots, and thereby more vulnerable to hunting pressure. Three years of "hunter's choice" seasons have increased doe harvest and reduced the buck-kill, resulting in an almost fifty-fifty split in harvest between bucks and does.
