Rut in the North.
All the receptive Does have to concede by the end of November, no later than the middle of December, to insure that their Fawns will be born in May/June. This gives the fawns time to put on enough bodyweight to make it through the harsh winters of the North. (Peak Rut week November 8th to the 15th)
Rut in the South.
The milder winter of the South makes it hard to predict that magic day. The breeding period is so long; it starts in December and goes through February/ March. Fawns will be born from late July into late September. (Peak Rut weeks December 20th to January 20th)
How Long Does a Doe carry a fawn??
After a doe has conceded, it takes 6 1/2 months (200 days) to give birth. A newborn fawn will nurse 5 times a day and will continue to nurse tell their 4 to 5 months or even older. A fawn will have up to 40 white spots. Staying hidden is the fawns only defense against predators. They’re very alert and their Momma Doe isn’t for away at all times.
Hunting the Rut…
The Rut is every hunter’s favorite time of the year to hunt. It can be exciting, and it can be heart breaking. During the peak week of the Rut in your area, make the all day hunts. You have to stay in your stand as long as you can. What triggers the Rut: long dark nights, moon Phases and the weather.
Kinion Bankston owner/host of Southern Boyz Outdoors Tv and SBO Social Media goes to Face Book Headquarters.
On Thursday around 3pm Southern Boyz Outdoors Face Book page was hacked into through another administrator. The Hacker deleted all the administrators an took control of SBO Face Book page. The Hacker started posting pornographic pictures and made changes to the page settings.
When asked to describe his important, last minute trip, Kinion was more than Happy to share the story of his journey. “I never slept or ate from the time of the take over to the time the problem was solved. We have allot of Kids and Women that follow Southern Boyz Outdoors and it just turned my stomach when I saw the porn pictures being posted on the SBO page. I tried everything I could do to solve the problem but wasn’t getting anywhere. I bought a ticket to fly to California to the Face Book Headquarters. Thinking I have to stop this now. My daughter found out there is a Face Book Headquarters in Texas. So I got in my truck an started my journey to Texas. When I got there, I was able to talk to the Security Guard, whom already knew me because he and his son follows my Southern Boyz Outdoors page. I told him what was going on. Not long after that, I met another person who works for Face Book he also follows my Southern Boyz Outdoors page. The Face Book team jumped right on the problem, and with in the hour the problem solved, with good leads on the Hacker. I was very touched by having people that work at Face Book following my page an telling me how much they enjoy Southern Boyz Outdoors and keep up the good work on the page (They love how we keep kids involved in the outdoors with our ‘Kids Enjoying The Outdoors post”) I would Like to Thank everyone at Face Book for their help what a Awesome Group of People.”
Just got back to the Swamp. I had a Awesome early season trip first stop Hepler KS with Xtreme Hunts seen a few Small Bucks and one shooter Buck to far to get a shot. Then it was off to North Missouri on my personal farms. We had TJ & Tanya Lane from Oklahoma with Bone-A-fide Outdoors hunting the early season with us. I was able to film Tanya harvest this nice 146.5 class Buck with her Bow. Tj Lane was also able to film the harvest from 150 yards away. Awesome footage of this Hunt. Look for this show ((Early Season Kansas – Missouri)) in the 4qt. Congrats to Tanya Lane for a Awesome Missouri Buck…

We had another Awesome Louisiana Alligators Season. We tagged 45 Gators in 6 days. The Longest 11ft the shortest 6ft our average Alligator size was 7ft 4.. We didn’t get the Big Gator that Randell I watched all summer, but he will be Bigger next year..
Our friend Shawn Poirrier was fishing with his girlfriend at a state park when his line got hung up. Trying to free it, he pulled the line and the weight flew back at him like a speeding bullet an hit Shawn perfectly in the corner of his eye, broke his eye socket and cheek bone breaking it in 3 places. He still can’t see out of his eye. Shawn is scheduled to see a bone Doctor and a eye specialist. Not sure if Shawn will be able to see out of his eye again. Let this be a warning to everyone. If your hook gets hung up sometimes it’s better to just cut the line free. Keep Shawn in your prayers.
With Hunting season fast approaching. We had a Awesome night out at Sarita’s Mexican Restaurant in Hammond Louisiana, with Family and Friends. (((Karaoke Night.. LOL..))) We all had fun singing and laughing at each other. Alligator season start Wednesday on the 27, 2014.. Then off to Kansas and Missouri to start the 2014/2015 Deer Season.. Thank you all for your Friendship.
