This. I killed my buck(avatar) last year on November 28th at 1:45 in the afternoon. He was run down just cruising his rub line I guess looking for a hot doe. It was raining all day that day. I sat from sun up till then. That was the only deer I saw that day which is very rare for where I hunt here in rusk county. I just checked. This was 3 days after the full moon. Don't know if this is relevant because of his rutting behavior. Just my .02
