    Okay? So? A small percentage of of breeding can happen in October. I would agree. I may be wrong but I think the main point is that many hunters see a buck bumping a doe in a food plot and think the rut is on, when it likely is not...at all.

    Yep, would definitely be an outlier based on photo period.

    Interesting? Yes. Am I reading all that? No, lol. I did skim some of it. Was there something specific? Looks like basic QDMA info, albeit the long version.

    Peak breeding days was interesting.
    It's an extensive scientific study of 10+ years.
