Anyone else hunting late season?

I went out Christmas Eve with the muzzleloader and then hunted a different area on Monday with my bow. Nothing moving either day.

I've only got 2 days left to my season. It ends Jan 1 and I have to work til the weekend.

With my combination of tags and the seasons open I can hunt does with a gun or I can hunter either buck or does with a bow. I've been picking the weapon of choice based on where I hunt and the likely ranges I can shoot.

My brother is stationed in Dover (DE) and said their deer season runs through February.....I'm thinking a visit might be in order. I've got to do something til Turkey season opens in the spring. LOL

I'm in the same boat, season ends in Ga Jan 1st.
It's been a tough season down here, unseasonably warm temps, and over abundance of acorns have the deer moving at night, I had some luck in the earlier season taking a 7 pointer and a 135lb doe, but haven't seen nothing since early November.

Alabama's season runs through the end of Jan, plus the rut heats up about mid month there.
I just might have to go see what it's all about.
