I have had my most deer sightings on the first quarter or last quarter of the moon....when it was overhead or underfoot. I used to follow the new moon and full moon theories but never had much luck...was hit or miss. Since started trying to make sure I MAKE TIME to hunt during first or last quarter when overhead during daylight....I have noticed a difference. All that is impacted by weather and human intrusion of course but all things being equal. I also make a point of getting out just before a big front swings through....or immediately after a storm that last more than just a few hours.

Keep em sharp,

I have never kept records on it, but it seems that, over the years, I have seen fewer deer during the brighter phases of the moon. However, I have seen enough deer during this time that I would not cancel a hunt due to a full moon.

My trail camera shows deer activity in the middle of the night during full moon and very little daylight activity. However, the 2 largest whitetail bucks I have ever seen while hunting, was during a full blood moon about 4:30PM The moon was huge and bright on the horizon, even though there was plenty of daylight left. The bucks were about 70 yards. The larger one was calm, the other one was on alert. I would of shot either of them had they came across my side of the field withing bow range.

I didn't vote for Hillary....but I'll take a full moon in November ANYTIME.

Some of my most memorable days and hunts were during those times....

I know some of us a late on this, but there is a TON of info on this site regarding the full moon....

LOTS of non Hillary voters can attest to their positive results.
