Overall Activity Status: Deer activity these days is dependent on weather and location. Hunting is winding down in Georgia, South Carolina, and Arkansas and heating up in Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, and eastern Louisiana. Scott Perrodin hunts in Louisiana and hunted the western part of the state and is now focusing on the eastern zone. "I had a good season so far, killed two bucks and one doe, but nothing big. The deer in my area have gone underground. It's just that time of year. I will be hunting in the eastern zone next week with primitive weapon. The rut action is on, seeing a lot of scrapes in the woods there." Louisiana has two rut periods, and, as Perrodin mentioned, it's winding down in the west but the rut is intensifying in the eastern portion near the Mississippi River.
