the fall equinox is September 22, 2010 the second full moon after the fall equinox marks the peak rutting activity which this year will be Nov. 21, the actual rut begins approx. 12 days before the peak rut so this year it will begin on Nov. 9th, the rut ends approx. 12 days after the peak rut which is Dec. 3rd
Now that's how I understand it and I hope I've explained it properly. I don't know how to explain the rut for different regions but Deer and deer hunting magazine has an annual calendar they put out every year, In it I think Charlie explains the rut throughout the U.S.
here's the link to their 2011 Calendar
if anyones interested in ordering one...
