the Bright full moon isn't helping your hunt, Deer will move all night long during bright full moons so naturally if they move all night they're probably not going to move much during the following days.
When the deer enter further into the Rut, you'll should begin to see more action. hope this helps, good luck

deer movement

I've always been told deer move most 3 to 6 hours after moon rise. If that's the case, that would explain why deer movement was very low this week. I can tell you it was very slow in central VA. Movement should pick up considerably next week -- when I'm back at work

These warm temps we are having are not helping.The full moons are also a problem.Where do you hunt in N.E. Okla?I live in N.E. Oklahoma,a few miles from Missouri.

My Guess is it's the Lull Of the Rut, everyones saying the same things you are,,
All I can blame it on is the rut be a little more patient we all know it's going to change. Good Luck

I gotta believe that I have the worse luck! I've been out almost everyday for the past 2-3 weeks and nothing! I have seen just one 4 point buck in shooting range last sat. That's it. Just no action. I am switching between two spots. I think I am going to quit the one spot (top of a mountain) there's just nothing moving around. Gonna find something new. Can't hurt. I'm already not seeing anything. Any tips out there?!

I see these doe in this small grass field every night (except for tonight) when I drive out of the area where I was hunting and thought perhaps I should set up near this field and wait for them in the late afternoon/evening...? What do you think? Good idea? There's only 4 days left here for archery...Gotta try something.

I WAS hunting this very small strip of woods in private land that I recorded a 10 point buck in late Oct and in late Sept. But have hunted there for weeks and saw nothing. Just nothing. Not even smaller buck. Got really discouraging and went up to this mountain spot. At least I saw a 4 pointer. Wonder if I should go back to this 10 point spot...? Now that the rut is supposedly "in".

Any advice?
