    Here it is

    I'm not taking this from an Alzheimer publication, but I've been reading his articles year after year. My experience says that the moon phase is only a part of what effects the rutting date.
    Last year for example, I saw bucks chasing does as October 28th which went hand in hand with Alzheimers predictions, but I still had bucks chasing does during shotgun season which was November 18th.

    ANYWAY-
    Hunters Moon (2nd full moon after the autumnal equinox) is November 12th.
    I believe that Alzheimer would say that the peek of the seekinig phase will be about 2 weeks before that. The peek of the chasing phase will be the week before that and the peek of the tending/breeding phase will be the week after that (I think).

    So
    October 29th- November 5th PEEK SEEKING
    Nov 5 - 12 PEEK CHASING
    Nov 12-19 Peek tending/breeding

    I might be off a little but I think that's the jist of it.

    I saw alot of buck movement last year from Halloween on, but for me the 2nd & 3rd weeks of Nov. had the best movement.
