RE: Peak rut dates for Maryland
It's hard to tell. The 15th is a good guess but it depends on this crazy weather. I always shoot for the 15th but last year it was touch and go. I don't think it kicked in until the week of Thanksgiving. Do you best to get max time in the woods around that date and try to devote more time if you miss it.
Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded here and there, now and then are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.
