Moon phase theorists predict an intense, "syncrhonized" rut this year - meaning that doe estrogen levels peak, buck testosterone levels peak and the rutting moon all occur near November 1st.
If this theory holds true, 2017 could be one of the most intense ruts we've seen in awhile!
They may, however start aggressively rubbing trees to vent their pent-up energy and show off their self-perceived dominance to other bucks.
