I used to hate full moons. I would never see deer. Once I started sitting all day I realized that the deer jsut move later.
On a full moon, deer would not move until after dark in the afternoon, but in the morning they were moving later. Instead of seeing deer at 700 in the morning i would see them at 900. now on a new moon it was the opposite. they would move early in the afternoon, and come in before light in the morning.
I know the phases affect animal movements but dont plan your hunting around it. Just coming from experience. It is never a sure thing to see them or not to see them. Hunt when you can and when you feel your best chance is.
new moon in dec. with snow on the ground. get lot's of extra minute's, so i have been told, that way. doesn't make a bit of difference regarding the rut, though, that's been disproven, one doesn't affect the other.
qdm? that means the spot's are gone, right? they all fit into my pan, regardless of size, one small piece at a time.
