    Default Moose rut

    When does the moose rut typically start? We are heading up to Nakina Sept 17th to the 24th for our first moose bow hunt.

    Is that too early for the rut? Is the rut weather related or does it just happen no matter the weather

    Thanks in advance

    Should be good for the rut, just pray for cold weather cause even when it is prime rut time if it is to hot they simple don't move in all my experiences,

    The rut happens at the same time each year. Like said already, weather plays a big part in their movement.

    Last tear in Nakina the temperature was to hot 75 F all week, and the moose were not moving at all.
    But the black fly's were terrible.

    You should expect to have better rut action later in your hunt. Based on my hunting experiences, breeding heats up around the 25th for about 8 days. So the last few days of your hunt should be fantastic if the weather cooperates. Once breeding begins, it starts getting tougher to bring in horny bulls.
