Re: Elk Rut Question
I have been following those prediction dates for the last couple of years myself. Last year (2009) I found myself in the middle of what was obviously a "peak". I have never heard so much noise and seen so many bulls. They were all going nuts still around noon. The bulls were acting plumb stupid. I had to work around several spikes that wanted to kiss me. I finally killed a 6 point. The date: September 26, 2009. Just a couple of days before the beginning of the predicted peak dates. I went hunting again a few days later and nothing, although some hunters reported peak activity after that. Weather, moon, wolves, etc. all have something to say about it.
