Great Moonphase Oct 30th-31st

Unread postby dreaming bucks » Wed Oct 27, 2010 12:04 am

The moon charts say the moon is directly overhead (moon transit) on the 30th and 31st ( sat and sunday) the first hour of daylight... Normally, that is suppose to keep a buck up on his feet a little bit longer in the morning and not go to his bed before daylight... But what I'm wondering is, is the moonphase thing all out the window when it comes to the rut season ? Are they into there rut habits already then, and it really doesn't matter what the moonphase is at this time ?

I am still getting big buck pics but I dont see them in the chaising phase yet. I do see the little guys chasing ever so slightly by me. I watched a small 6pt chase/check every doe in the field last weekend. When he was done checking, he started eating telling me even he is not in the swing of things yet.

I think with the moon this coming weekend, it could very well be a great time to be out.

I agree Treejunkie.... also, with all this strong wind the next couple days, sounds like the weekend is suppose to be pretty quiet here, so I'm hoping those bucks will be ready to move by then.. I have a really good feeling that some fellow "Beast" are going to get the job done this weekend. It's Halloween weekend, time to get excited !!!

I agreed to accompany my wife to NC this weekend.......ughhhhh. It was either I go with her or she drives 4 hours south by herself. I am not letting her go alone. BUT it will be killing me to not be hunting! I hope she knows how much I love her due to the fact I am giving up several hunting days!
