Drought Could Impact Deer Season

Deer Plot
This food plot in Baldwin County should be lush and thick, but it's struggling because of the drought.

LOXLEY, AL- The drought in Alabama could cause problems for deer hunters as the season opens Saturday.

Some hunters are reporting barren food plots and water sources that have dried up. The deer aren’t moving much and are staying deeper in the woods closer to larger water sources.

The drought will force some to do traditional, old school hunting and scouting instead of just sitting in a house or tree stand near a plot. Some say that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Many deer hunters we talked to believe the second half of the season will be better. Gun deer season runs through February 10th.
