Default Rut Dates?

Noob here with a quick question. Anybody know the expected dates of the rut this year in Illinois. I found a chart that dated it Nov.10th-20th. But couldn't find a date on it to verify it was for the 2005 season. This sounds about right to me, but would like to know for sure, need to plan some vacation time!

Default That sound like a perty good time.

You can't really go wrong with those dates.
I log all my sightings and deer activity,last year...
The prerut started around oct.17-18and the rut started on the 3rd and went to the 20th.
I would say ruffly speaking...most of all the big ones get taken by bow between the 7th and the 12th.
That's just my opinion.

I like to spend as much time as possible in the woods starting around Halloween.

Default I got some info.

I got some charts,one is a game movement chart called primetimes by Doug Hannon,andJeff Murrays deer hunters moon guide.
I think you can't go wrong with what Chris said.But I look at all this information about the moon,obviously the new moon period seems to be the ticket for most rutting activity.
The 30-the 4th should be good,If I had any day to hunt this year,it would be the 8th of Nov.,it's on a tuesday.It's a good day to call in sick or take a personal day from what I see.
It shows times around ... 5:30am/3;30-6:00pm,but It is a all dayer to me.

Default Moon Up time

Glenny,
Is the moon up in the AM or PM by the charts? I have the whole week off and I hope your right about the moon times lining up

New moon begins the first,the 8th is on the halfmoon.The times say 5:37am/6:05pm.the game movement chart shows roughly the same exact times as well.I would say you can't go wrong that week regardless of what the moon says,it just is good in my opinion.
If you stay in your stand and play the wind you'll do fine,good luck.
