Default Understanding The Rut

This link to Deer Hunter TV with Charlie Alsheimer is a great Video to help a hunter understand the Rut...
If you want a better underdstanding of the Rut, watch this video over and over again, Even though it's a 2007 Video,
it is still FULL of valuable information to help hunters understand the rut better.

According to the Rutting moon This Year (2008)
the "peak rut" is going to be Nov. 20th which means the "rut" will start 12 days before the "peak rut" so the rut will start on Nov. 8th 2008
it will end 12 days after "peak rut" which will be Dec 2nd 2008.

Note: the pre rut starts on the first full moon after the fall equinox which this year is Oct. 14th
Good Luck Everyone!!! I Want to See Pictures

And I just found out from that Video that He and Wayne Laroche worked together on that Rut study project,
Wayne Laroche is the Fish & Wildlife Commissioner for the state of Vermont.
