The Rut Follows a Lunar Cycle
This myth has persisted for ages and it’s one of the hardest to debunk (especially if you’re talking to a moon phase believer).
If you like astrology or horoscopes, you probably think it makes perfect sense that the rut is triggered by a moon phase.
The fact t is that many significant scientific studies have show that it has nothing to do with the moon. The rut begins at roughly the same time each year in each region, no crystal ball or star charts needed.
For whatever reason, hunting and moon phases have long been linked by hunters, but they are not a catalyst for the rut.
