Default 2013 Rut

If you believe or follow the thought that the rut coincides with the 2nd full moon after the autumn equinox then we are going to have a late rut this year. Last years was early. The 2nd full moon is scheduled for November 17th this year which will mean they will start going crazy around the 12th to the 14th. Supposedly when it is late the rut is a much faster developing rut.

The rut will hit either the week before or the week after I take my leave from work.

If you hunt from mid oct to mid dec you'll hit per rut, full rut and post rut. I usually take 6-8 weeks off so I don't miss it. The rest of the season I work a few days here and there to finance all my hunting.

If you are where the deer are, then it doesn't matter what the temperature is or the phase of the moon.

Weather plays a big part in rut activity. Don't get me wrong it still happens but when it's 10-15 degress above average it happens a lot less during daylight hours.

Same time as last year, the year before that and the year before that in my neck of the woods - first two weeks in November. You can set your watch by it.

When it happens, they won't take a break day or night.

When you see the bucks all running doe's like crazy thats not the "rut" like everyone thinks.. thats pre rut. During the rut they will be locked down with a doe till she is bred.

In SW Ga, we just have to stay on em, cause the rut has been late and intermitten for the last few years. Almost not noticeable, except for the running sign they make at night. That we get to see each day while they're layed up.

Second week in January last year was when I shot my big 9-point in full rut chasing a poor little doe that was scared to death! My son shot his big 10-point the first week in January and that one was also in full rut and chasin'.

The deer in your area will rut the same dates as last year and the year before and the year before.

No effect from the moon.

No effect from the temperature or frost.

Science has proved the lack of impact from any force outside the amount of sunlight per day.
