Default Charlie Alsheimer & Wayne Laroches rut predictions

Feel me in fellows.. Who on here follows these guys? Do they predict the rut for the whole United States?

I noticed I beleive spiker and Bruce making mention of them being right on the money. I want to compare notes with what they say if you fellows like them.

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...

I don't follow them. PA rut was going on Nov 4th when we got there, not sure how that fits in their predictions. The rut happens every year with-in a couple of days either way so I never get to excited by predictions. Mother nature seems to have the most impact on the extent of the rut, light, heavy, extended ect. I know the moon phase also enters into the equasion. It's not rocket science just step into the woods and see what's happening.
