The "new" peak rut dates

Postby Sailfish » Wed Nov 03, 2010 9:03 am

If anyone recalls the FWC has been doing extensive interviews and research to narrow down our vast rut dates for us. Below are the most recent dates. While they are trying very hard to get these close, I just think they aren't hitting it yet. But with our nutrition, weather, diverse ecosystems, etc its probably always going to vary. Heck apparently in South Florida fawns have been birthed in every month of the year.

Anyways here  it is, my primary area (in the very center, orange) has been greatly revised from the old Nov 1, to Jan/Feb, however, traditionally it has been early Dec +/-. At least they are trying.
