Bowhunting Moon Phase, Fact or Fiction?

Are there really bow hunting moon phase that really effect deer and other wildlife? I am not one hundred percent sure for myself, but there have been enough studies conducted and books written on the subject to give it consideration.


Specifically it is believed that wildlife activity increases when the moonrise or moonset coincides with the monthly phases of a new moon or full moon. It is believed that hunting is better when the moonrise or a moonset within thirty minutes hunting is very good. If the moonrise or moonset occurs during sunrise or sunset, then the hunting is believed to be excellent. There are free Solunar tables and moon phase calendars available on the Internet, others are available for purchase. There are some downloadable versions that can go directly onto your PDA available as well.

Here is one moon phase website that is free on the Internet:
