you pull that off my link ?

I know people that swear by it. I think we they start to move / rut it won't matter what the moon is doing. Too many other elements involved. I do like dark nights as I ten to think the deer as less likely to move as opposed to a full moon scenario.

I just happens that I will be out next week during the dates it show as BEST DAY to hunt/fish. We'll see.

Those cycles work. I have been using them for 15-20 years and believe in them. I have a Casio watch that will do this for you. There is people I work with come and ask for the peaks every weekend. This also works with fishing. The watches are called Hunting timers and fishing timers. A lot of hand held GPS have this feature in them also. The peaks covers a 2 hour window that covers most movement.

They match pretty darn close. I always watch the moon phase.

But when the weather this hot moon phase cant help movement.

I use the guide published in F&S and it seens to be very effective for fishing and hunting. I also believe in the signs from the farmers almanac. when to plow, plant, castrate and wean animals it works.

I can't read it real well. Does it say the best times to hunt are the ones in bold?

Yes... Right Column.. Moon is UNDERFOOT. Left Column.. Moon is OVERHEAD. You can Google a ton of information on 'why' hunting/fishing is affected at these times. SOme of it makes a great case.

Most factors supercede moon phases. Food, water, weather, lust, time of day, hunting pressure, number of deer in an area, etcetera. Luckily for the moon charts there is a moon phase during every one of these happenings.
