The Moon - What do we know?

It looks like a good, lengthy cold front is due starting on Saturday. That, and the approach of a New Moon next week might get things started. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. That's because to do a week of all days sits, I have to make it next week. Family commitments aren't always fun.

I don't think there is any denying the moon can impact the rut after this past week of activity. The day after the Super Moon, I think most of us felt it was time to start hunting that midday time frame with the late setting moon. We're told the best times to hunt are when the moon is directly overhead and underfoot. The moon was underfoot at 1:26PM on Tuesday after one of the brightest moons we will see in our life time, which only encouraged late night rutting and a slow morning. This is the Broke Brow 10. A 5.5 year old buck who despite some daylight activity this year, has been the most elusive buck around. This picture may have sold me an Adam Hayes Moon Guide...
