I'm scheduling my week away from work for this years extended archery hunt. Looking at the November time frame, I am looking for opinions on which week to shoot for.

The week of November 8th is listed as the New moon week, but will this have an effect on the Rut? I have heard in the past that the rut usually peaks around the full moon? Taking this into account, its not until the week of the 22nd for the full moon to come around... In my opinion waiting for the full moon may be a bad idea.

Any info or opinions are appreciated.

Thanks.

length of day affects the rut, as the days get shorter the does go into estrus and trigger the rut. Moon phase and weather will have a bigger affect on feeding habits. New moons make it harder to feed at night, so you will find more feeding and movement during the day.
