the Moon's Influence on the Rut

the moon influences deer behavior - particularly rutting activity - is one of
the most captivating and controversial issues in deer hunting circles. Charlie
Alsheimer and Vermont wildlife biologist Wayne Laroche are currently in their
ninth year of researching a theory that links the timing of the rut to the appearance
of the second full moon after the autumnal equinox. The results from the first
eight years of this project have been nothing short of fascinating. Click
