I am aware of the phases of the moon, but when I am ready to do some serious hunting it has not impact. There are "X" number of days to hunt during the deer season and I will not pass up a hunting day because there is a full moon. I do believe that hunting is better during the dark of the moon, along with cold weather. This years deer came six days before the full moon.
I know that I used a program that I bought ( www.outdooroutlook.com ) to analyze over 13,000 trail camera pictures from last season to this season. The program is really easy, (three clicks, 10 seconds and the following graph was made). It reads the time/date, calculates the moon phase and graphs all from the picture file. For some reason there is a peak around the last quarter. Another graph shows me that the most daytime pictures were taken then as well.
Well I took a look at the Chart and Tomorrow morning is suppose to be the best time. The wind is not the way I want it but if you ain't out their then you definitely ain't seeing anything. Anyway its suppose to be 36 in the morning getting up to 68. So ill be out their all day and the wind is light and variable.
