Deer movement and moon phaze

Hi Fisher King!

My expirience with the roedeers is that you see them less in the morning and in the evening when there is moon light. Because in this cases they move later in the evening, run the whole night as long as there is moon light and went back to their sleeping places early in the morning. When there is new moon or cloudy sky they move earlier in the evening and later in the morning.

Regards

I hope this is the same for whitetail. New moon is coming up at the start of the rifle season.

Perhaps I've misunderstood the "full moon" concept. I was under the asumption that it was being implied that deer feed more during the night on a full moon. Now, I think y'all meant that hunting was better (during hunting hours) on a full moon. Ah-ha, I'd be inclined to agree.
