I would imagine this has been discussed more than once and if you don't feel like talking about it feel free to point me towards some previous post but if you don't mind me asking your opinions I would like to hear them. If you had 2 weeks to archery hunt elk in Idaho when would you go? I have spoke with many biologists, researched many articles etc. I researched the moon phase for 2014 and understand that historically (depending on many variables) the peak of the rut usually falls within a weekish of the autumnal equinox which is September 22, 2014. With that said I know different phases of the rut can present/create many different situations and opportunities so based on your experience when would you hunt? Thanks in advance of your opinions.
