The truth is, there is a best day of the year for whitetail deer hunting. But that day is not the same every year. On this episode I give you the tools to help you discern the best day of the year to hunt whitetails in your area.
- The rut happens at the same exact time every year, no matter what.
- The moon does not determine the rut, the days getting shorter does.
- The moon can play a small part, but the weather plays a much larger part.
- Bucks are going to breed does every day and night during the peak of the rut. But there are days where they will move more during the daylight.
- Here is Pennsylvania’s data on when does breed during the peak rut. I misspoke on the show, it is based on 6,000 does studied.
- The effect of weather and temperature is relative. There is no magic temperature or conditions. It is all about how the weather is compared to how it has been.
- Listen to the episode to find out the best day of the year for you to hunt deer.
