RE: Charles Alsheimer's 2005 rut predictions
All I can say is that in far northern WI, the 9th, 10th and 11th of November have no doubt, hands down, been the best times for seeing buck going gonzo. Maybe a day or two on either side of these days, but within that time frame, I will be in the woods no matter what!!
Personally, I don't follow alot of what is written in many magazines. Way too general. Like I said above, this time frame is like clockwork in my area, although not too far away, it may be different.
