Assessing the Moon's Influence on the Rut
The question of whether or not 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 here to view Charlie's commentary on the study.
