Default Alsheimer rut predictions

Just talked to Charles and his predictions are very clear.......10-15% percent of does will be bread in late Oct with the heaviest rutting activity around Nov 13-23

Interesting. I don't know who to believe. I know Bill Winke doesn't believe in the moon phases. He believes its around the same time every year.

Untmost respect for Charlie A. but Winke is right. Numerous studies by the best deer biologist in the country show that, for the most part ,they breed pretty much the same time each year. You may not see it primarily due to unseasonably warm weather, but, nonetheless , they are doing their thing....Approx. 40 years of back dating fetuses show that neither moon phase or Charlie's theories hold water....

I would agree to some extent, you don't think the moon has any effect on rutting behavior?

All I know is over the past 20 years November 3rd - 12th is always rocking. In my opinion, weather plays the biggest role in it all.

I get the most scrape visits on Halloween.

I agree with ya Mike. 24 years of bowhunting and almost every big archery buck i've taken was between Nov 3rd and the 12th. I also think the weather is king when it comes to rut activity.

My family has actually taken a majority of our nicer bucks from Oct 24-Oct 31.
