ABOUT WHITETAIL SLAM:
Along with renowned whitetail biologist Dr. Harry Jacobson, Certified Wildlife Biologists Kip Adams and Brian Murphy of QDMA, Whitetail Slam created 8 subgroups in keeping with historic subspecies distribution theory, but also with consideration of habitat, climatic and other factors that have caused deer in these areas - and the hunting experience - to be distinctive.
Dividing lines can constitute a grey area where the deer are similar in appearance, and possibly genetics. That said, the further a hunter travels from these divisions, the more different the habitat and the deer become. Learn more in our SLAM Bucks page.
A NEVER ENDING SEASON:
Whitetail diversity & adaptation creates almost unlimited opportunities. Savvy buck hunters in pursuit of a Whitetail Slam will quickly learn that Florida whitetails rut in August and Arizona desert whitetails in January. There is a whitetail rut somewhere in North America every month from August to February, allowing traveling hunters unique opportunities to hunt during the best part of the season, for a much longer period than they would find in just their own back yards.
