Deer breed at just about the same time every year. Fetal development studies bear this out. The moon has nothing to do with it. Nutrition is the major factor and weather is the major factor determining what you see. If it is really hot, you may think there has been no rut. But, trust me, the does get bred just about as they did last year. It has been that way for a very long time.
