Well, after looking at the new moon schedule this year... Looks like I will be hunting right on the tails of the biggest redneck yahoo party of the year. I hope the animals calm down enough to get close. I really hate hunting full moon weeks because elk get so quiet in the day hours after being active all night. I love that third week of September though, as the elk seem to be more engaged in the rut and more vocal than early in the month.

Puts me in a conundrum now.... Stick to what works on time, or stick to what works by moon schedule. Never really faced a decision like this one.

Paul!!??? I hunt right there out of town.... Whats your experience say in this split?
