I was just wondering if you all go for the moon affecting the Rutting stages & if you believe that the full moon is the peak?

Myself I say why not..the moon affects alot of things behavioral & natural so why not the deer rut.??

If this is so..it appears the Rut will be either very early or very late ..the full moon is on November 5th

Only thing I trust the moon on for sure, is the brighter the moon, the more the deer will be moving at night......and if the deer are moving more during the night, then they're going to be moving less during the day.

I follow it pretty close but I dont place a "Hunt"--"Dont hunt" value on the moon phase! I do check the phase in my GPS and it seems I get a little more excited if everything seems to fall in line!

:D AMEN! Put time in the tree in a good spot, and you will eventually be rewarded.

Gotta love bowunting the morning after a cloudy night during the full moon.

The deer will be moving all over the place and getting caught up from lost time the night before.
