    The rut definitely slows down with warmer temperatures and the full moon this week will hurt things a bit too.

    I am with you Ranger! I think the full moon is more of a reason than ever to sit all day though

    Idreamofdoptines- because when there is a full moon deer activity at night increases and your peak activity periods tend to be at first and last light. But during the prerut, which I think is beginning, bucks will move during mid-day. So I'd be in my stand all day, every day over the next two weeks. Personally I'd make some mock scrapes right now and do some grunting and maybe rattling during the day and try to pull a mature buck out of bed.

    Hi- Nov 12th, 430pm. Temp 36 degrees. Came into a doe in heat call from my reliable "True Talker". Shot him standing in his scrape recently freshened up with Code Blue. Not the Ohio bruiser I was after but this was the biggest deer I saw all week. Click image for larger version.
