    2013 Rut

    2013 rut? talking bout it already? YUP! haha anyways my dad and I are going back to ohio again this fall and he has to have his vacation in by jan 20 so I'm looking for your opinion on a "SAFE/GO TO DATE". We looked at alsheimers, and it's inconclusive, it says it's a weird year and the rut is supposed to be mid octoberish or late november. After reading this I figured I'd turn to the veterans (you guys) with your go to date for the rut in ohio.

    On my King of Bucks calendar it shows Oct. 23-29, Nov. 7-13 and Nov. 22-28 as high activity for what that's worth. With a New Moon on Nov. 3 the week before or week after will be good.....after all....it's Ohio!! Of course the second full moon after the Autumn Equinox is November 17 which is often referred to as the start of the actual RUT. For me, I think it will be a little similar to last year and we will see rutting and chasing mid Oct. thru November. That full moon on Oct. 18 will fool a lot of does into going early I think.... :sifone:

    My exact thought. I mostly hunt south central Ohio and southern Ohio and that is dead on. I always count on the last 10 days of October thru the first few days of November has always been good time for deer movement.
    If there were 8 days in a week I would hunt 8 days

    Do you think the fourth to eleventh will be too late? Or should we try the week of October 28th?

    Good luck with trying to pin point it. I would have to say your at least in the right date frame. I saw much rut activity from Halloween until the day I smoked my 10 point, And that was on Nov 4rth. Its a crap shoot on hitting it perfect. Good Luck to you on your trip to Ohio!

    It's usually hard to beat the first full week of november... but, it is so hard to actually pin point when it'll be on until it is... you just have to pick a time and go for it... any of the dates you are looking at could be great as long as the weather cooperates...

    I always draw blood during the first full week of Nov.. My magic days are the 4 th and the 7th for some reason... I don't follow the predictions at all.. The first week of Znov they will be on their feet... Some years are better than others mostly depending on weather.. Save ur sweet spots to keep them fresh and sit all day and good things will happen.. Oh and always hunt the right wind
