I have never understood the theory that a full moon triggers anything in a deer. Scientifically speaking everything I have read indicates that bright light stimulus(sun or moon) causes decreased levels of melatonin output from the pineal gland and that darkness triggered mainly by photoperiod increases output of melatonin and trigger a deers (also sheep, horses, etc) annual breeding cycle. The added darkness around a new moon spikes the output even higher. The full moon has the opposite effect.
A little confusing where the full moon theories come from. For example if the "Rutting Moon" is Nov.23 what does that trigger, if we think that triggers a doe to come into heat that would put her being bred the end of December, if we think the full moon prior to that one on Oct.23 triggers it that would put deer being bred around Thanksgiving, both seem late.
The autumn equinox is usually around Sept 22-23 and usually near a full moon so even if you believe it is the full moon that causes a does breeding cycle that is the closest one as far as dates go to when many hunters experience that rut and that would have does being bred near the 3rd or 4th week of October, it is closer to November but not really when most see the rut. It is fairly common knowledge that if you can hunt the first 2 weeks of Nov. you should. I dont think it is a coincidence that happens to be almost exactly a month after the first new moon, every year.
The second full moon of Autumn was called the "Rutting Moon" by the indians. I don't think they named it that because it triggered the rut but that is the time of year the majority of their focus shifted to hunting and when deer activity increased. That half of the moon cycle(from new to full) this year is from Nov. 6 - Nov. 20. Take from that what you will but I will be hunting hardest from Halloween through Nov 20. I guess we will know soon enough.
