Don’t you know that Adam Hays says the red moon is the best time to be in the stand?? He is the gospel! He has his own tv show and a bunch of sponsors including Sitka, Ozonics and Conquest Scents (made from real deer btw). He has several 200 inch bucks from the best managed farms in the country!!
Btw, don’t forget to buy his Moon Guide for only $29.95!!
With all that said, I have seen deer move according to time frames predicted by solunar tables. Were they jumped by a coyote or other hunters? Or were they responding to the gravitational/electromagnetic impact of the moon’s position in the sky and proximity to Earth? Hard to say but don’t forget your HECS suit on the way out!
Finally, even the most avid moon followers will say there are many other factors that can override the impact of the moon on movement. Pressure, weather, food availability...I do try to be in the woods at peak activity times when I can. As a primarily weekend hunter, I don’t have a lot of choices.
One final, final thing. If it’s a full moon at night, then I’m sleeping in unless it’s rut.
