E Ontario - the rut is on!

I was out glassing last night - the rut appears to be in full swing. Can't count how many quality bucks I watched prance all over the fields after does. It was unreal! Too bad season doesn't open til Monday.

As an aside - to all those debating the effects of lunar phase on rut timing (Peterson's Hunting - Oct edition) tonight is the "rutting moon", and by the photo-activity theory that seems to be this years buzz word the rut shouldn't be starting for another couple weeks.
