You could sit all day which some say is the best because the deer might go back to bedding area later in the morning. Or stay home drink beer because hunting a full moon is a waste of time.

I use to follow all that moon phase stuff years ago back in the early 90's when it first came out on the "wheel". I then found myself dependent on it. I also found myself becoming lazy because I started to let a "wheel" dictate where I hunted, when I hunted and IF I hunted.

I have found that hunting season is so short anyway, I chucked the dang thing and hunted regardless. You know what, I was killing deer well enough. LOL!

Anyway, there are better times to hunt, in as far as the moon's size and position is concerned, so they say, but I since forgot all that, so if you're curious, I hope someone can offer up that info.

Good luck,

I have killed deer later in the morning and on into the noon hour but I'm with you the moon phase time schedule for game movement is crap! I was just wondering if some of ya'll may have found out something other than what I knew that hunting a full moon is tough. Can't say I'll stay in and drink beer but I bet I'll have a few shots of whiskey.....strictly for medicinal pourposes of course.

I actually am set up that way. I live on 60ac and lease the surrounding 110. There is a big hay medow between my house and the tree line that I planted about 3ac of Monster Mix on. I did this so while my wife and I are taking turns hunting and watching the 2yr and 4yr old the one that is not on stand can technically still hunt...however comfortable it may be.
