  1. Hi.

    Would you know when is the peak of the rut please ? I would take this week to go hunting ( new Brunswick though.. ....)
    I understand some factors will influence this, but in general what dates are the moose the most excited ....
  2. Tough to beat the third week in September in northern Maine. By the time of the Maine hunt in the second week of October, it seems to me that the bulls are not quite as responsive to cow in heat calls as they were during the September hunt.

    Hope that helps as far as hunting in NB.

  3. thank you for your answer hurricane
    I ended up booking September 26th to October 1st.
