People are prob gonna quote tests. The deer they say move the same. Prob same people who tested the people voting and guaranteed a Hillary landslide.
Anyway I don't like full moons in any type hunting. The deer usually are moving very little even during the rut over here. I still hunt but I'd not pay for it. Other areas may differ and I've personally never hunted Ohio,

I like to hunt pretty much all the time. Sure the moon does have an effect on animals, but it sure doesn't take away the joy of being in God's country. I've taken game animals here in Arkansas on about every kind of temperature, precipitation, season, and/or moon condition you could have except flat out tornadoes or thunderstorms due to safety reasons. Some days and conditions are better than others but I've never once filled a freezer while while at home daydreaming about getting outside.

Im like you, id rather hunt a dark moon phase. Honestly i think the weather is the biggest factor or contributor.

I HATE full moons. I'm not sure I've ever seen a deer on a full moon while hunting. But, I'm like Charlie Brown trying to kick the football. I know it will be fruitless, but I'm gonna try anyway.

Are you thinking the rut will be during Oct 22-26? Just curious

Deer are more active during the midday hours on and around a full moon usually, I tend to hunt more then.

Full moon, mid day hunting.

X2 on the mid day hunting, game will be active during the night and be bedded early and late with an activity period in the middle of the day to early afternoon when most hunters are in camp complaining about the lack of activity.

Deer feed every few hours, full moon of dark moon. Figuring out where and when is the ticket.

What if it's overcast and cloudy. Does that make the moon phase irrelevant?

Speaking only of elk, but with a bit of pressure they tend to go more nocturnal but it doesn't seem to be any moreso than with a full or partial moon.

X4 on mid day hunting. I have 4 cameras set up and almost every time I get a 10am-2pm picture it's on or near a full moon.

They will move about the same amount during a bright moon - it's just that amount is increasingly at night. I've not had that much luck during them, even mid day. Now if it is during the rut all bets are off.
