Rutting activity has started across Oklahoma and motorists should be aware that deer are on the move.
“We are getting a lot more reports of road kill deer,” said Micah Holmes of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. “We are also starting to get reports of young bucks chasing does.”
The rutting activity should intensify as the opening of deer gun season approaches Nov. 17 with darker nights and colder weather in the immediate forecast, Holmes said.
Which leads me to a question, how much do hunters and anglers pay attention to moon phases? Some hunters swear by it.
But is it fact or folklore? Can you accurately predict deer activity by the moon? Can you accurately predict the best times for hunting and fishing by the moon phases?
What do you think? I’m interested in hearing people’s opinions about this.
