Just a note re Mr. Alsheimer. I have known Charlie a long time. He is an excellent photographer and does a great job with his penned deer. If he knows anything about deer other than the ones in his pen, I am not aware of it.

He is a nice guy who saw an opportunity to make some money on technical gobbnledeygook. Our own BSK could easily have done the same thing. It is simply a matter of wrting something that sounds logical, depending on old wives tales (hunters moon) to support it, being very selective on what data you use and liberally sprinkling it with b.s. The now deceased guy who had the moon wheel did exactly the same thing. I can't remember his name.

I have just a tad over 50-years of deer hunting experience under my well worn belt. I have strudied them as well as hunting them. I spent a little time investigating this "moon thing" back when all that still green b.s. came out. It cannot stand factual scrutiny.

If someone says, "My buddy has killed five huge deer using the moon...etc." That does not mean the moon had a thing to do with the rut. It means his Buddy, believes it did and hunted harder then. Don't confuse killing big bucks with when the rut is or was. You determine that by examining the fetus and factually knowing when that doe was bred.

Those are facts, not anecdotes and the fact is, the moon has not one dam thing to do with the rut. And that's a fact Jack!

But aint it fun to debate it. Kinda like debating who won the Super Bowl. You know what the score was but you can still debate who won.

Constipation has ruined many a good day. Not as many as stupidity, though.

TENNBOY don't worry about the moon. When you see the coal rollin from the cummins heading north you will know its time \:D

Time of movement is my first indicator.
