Here is a link to an interesting Penn State Univ. study. At first I was surprised but the more I thought about it, not really.

I think during this prime time, it's more likely hunting pressure that depresses movement than any lack of desire to move. I have certainly been through "nocturnal ruts," but after enough seasons to have some perspective, never felt there was a lack of buck motivation during daylight.

Outside this period, I think warm weather and bright nights do encourage nighttime activity to the detriment of daytime.

I'd love to see this same data for a rut period that matches up with medium and heavy hunting pressure, such as we have here.

Penn State is really doing some great research! Thanks for the link and sharing it. :tu:
