Deer Hunting in Chicot Lake in South Central Louisiana

Area 6 Rut

Does anyone know when the rut is in full effect in Thistlewait WMA? What about around the Chicot State Park area?

Thistlewait rut

Thistlewait WMA is only a few miles from my

house and where I hunt. Their rut is the same as ours and runs from about Jan 1-15.

I've been hunting area 6 for 13yrs now and never have I seen it around Thanksgiving, its always the last week of December or the first week in January. That doesnt mean that different parts of area 6 are all the same tho, I hunt 1800 acres off the Mississippi River in Addis.
