Default Moonlit nights

I was just curious if any of you guys have captured anygame on your camerasduring brightmoonlit nights? I've always heard that game didn't move much at all on a bright night, and I haven't seen any pics posted anywhere that I remember with a moonlit scenery.

Also have you noticed a difference ingame activity on different moon phases by way of your cameras?

Thanks

yes, no-doult that the moon plays a roll in the times the deer move.
some of the newer cam's show the moon phase on the pic's.
I do deer ratio counts on full moon nights and always see to different movement times during the night. Deer will always move at night! Some move only at night until the rut comes in.
I don't know if this helped.

With the flash I think it would be hard to tell if the moon was out or not.

Deer move a lot on a bright night...

That's when they move the most down here. We usually do our census on full moons, cause we see more deer then than any other time. Whoever told you they don't move on a bright night, is just "blow'in Smoke"

Of course, I'm in the south, so maybe in the north were there is more chance of wolves, or other meat eaters getting them that would keep them from wandering out.
