So let’s agree that “unknown” in all reality means “very complex,” and that the moon might contribute at times, as accelerated movement might contribute to more feeding. More feeding, especially heavy acorn years/ succulent grasses, might mean more nutrients consumed and starting an estrous cycle….complex. The moon moves trillions of gallons of water everyday….I know really nothing to do with does and heat, but it has always effected this planet one way or another.Yes, agreed. It certainly triggers bucks to start searching. Whether that triggers a doe into estrus and on what day is still unknown..
