The Rutting Moon 2010
Understanding The Rutting Moon May Help You Make Better 2010 Rut Predictions

Sean McCosh (DuckBuckGoose)- PHJ FieldStaff - Cincinnati, OH

The rutting moon isn't one of the phases of the rut, but it is definitely a date to remember.  If you are trying to make rut predictions for 2010 make sure you put this date on your calendar and consider it while you are planning your days off.  The Rutting Moon 2010 falls on Sunday, November the 21st. 

The rutting moon is the second full moon after the Autumnal Equinox and the day many moon phase hunting theorists claim triggers the seeking phase of the rut and the beginning of breeding activity.  Again, for 2010 the rutting moon falls on Sunday, November 21st.  This is a very late date for the rutting moon and some believe it will result in a late rut and very sporadic "on again, off again" rutting activity in 2010.  Although, keep in mind that other factors like air temperature, barometric pressure, deer sex ratios and human hunting pressure can also affect the daytime rutting activity observed from region to region. 

While some hunters swear by the reliability of the rutting moon and other aspects of moon phase hunting at helping them predict deer behavior, other hunters think it is a sharp drop in temperature that triggers peak breeding.  This is one of those battles for the ages that hunters debate about year-after-year, decade-after-decade.  Adding to the confusion is the fact that average peak rut dates differ from state-to-state and region-to-region.  For example, rut dates in the South can be significantly later than they are in the Northern and Mid-Western states. 

To end the debate for yourself and become better equipped to make accurate rut predictions for your area in the years to come, I would suggest keeping a hunting journal and recording key information about your hunts, including; the date, the weather condtions, the moon phase, observed rutting behavior, overall deer activity and more.  This will help you make better rut predictions in the years to come, including improving the accuracy at predicting secondary rut timing. 

If you haven't joined already, offers a free online hunting journal that makes it simple to track all of this important data, as well as share hunting photos, organize your trail camera photos and more, all in one place.  Plus, the site provides you with custom hunting and scouting mapping tools, field reports from other hunters and useful information and tips that can help you improve your success in the field.  If you have not joined yet, click here to set up your free online hunting journal now. 

We hope this article has provided helpful information to help you better understand the rutting moon and help you plan more successful hunts this fall. 

Good luck in the field and shoot straight!
