Default The Moon

I think we all have heard theories about the moon and what it does to deer movement. What do you all think. Full moon, no moon, moon on the rise? Do any of you use a moon chart to hunt special nights and has it worked? Thanks

i have used them and i do thing it does have an affect. Still have questions myself but there has to be some reason why you see deer in the fields at 2:00 pm and other days when they aren't coming out til dark!

I think the deer have patterns that they follow like clockwork. Cause if you ever go scouting with a spotlight you see alot of the same deer in the same areas everytime you check them. The only reason I say that is because you see the same number of deer in the same areas which leads me to believe they are probably the same deer. It does seem though that after a full moon I don't see as many deer in the morning as I usually do.
