DEER RUT PREDICTIONS on various web site all have claims and reasons why it will happen.
After hunting all week I can say I haven’t seen a lot of rutting deer;
Deer & Deer Hunting TV always come close to predicting the rut.
The rutting moon this year falls on November 21, the latest it has ever fallen in Alsheimers’ study and given that, it looks like the rut could be later than we’ve seen in a long time. That being said, here is the “cliff notes” version of Alsheimers predictions for the 2010 rut in the North…
· A minor “sweet spot” of deer activity will occur around Oct 22, as the seeking and chasing phases of the rut will begin, but at a slower pace than usual.
· Buck activity will really get kicked into gear around the 15th and increase steadily.
· The major “sweet spot” and the peak of the chasing phase will occur from Nov 21 through 25.
· Most breeding will be done in the last week of Nov and into early December.
