Personally, this time of year and on a full moon, I would rather not get into my stand until 9 or 10 and hunt until dark as opposed to leaving during the mid morning like that.

I ALWAYS see more deer on a full moon, and especially during mid day. Add to that the rut will be kicking into overdrive in the next week, and it would behoove you to be in the stand as much as possible.

Depending on when the moon is at it's highest point, it may be beneficial to skip the morning hunt. Often times I will enter the woods around 8-9 and leave at 2 or so. But sometimes I just enjoy being out in the morning and I can't make myself sleep late.

Precisely right, which is why we should stay just as long as humanly possible.
