Learn Something New About Earth's Moon
I want to also ad to my earlier comment on the moon phase. If you don't have the time to hunt mid days because you work or any other reason, on those fully on
Phases try sitting in your stand in the mornings a little later then u usually do. Most of us get out of our stand around 9:30. Try. Sitting untill 10:30am. - 11:00am. Deer in my studies have always seamed to move right before or at first lite. And then the movement always seamed to pick up around those suggested times. Give it a shot a couple of times. You may not always see deer, but I will bet you that the knowledge you learn and see will be priceless. Again sage and successfull hunting to you all.!!! Ricky J.
Ive harvested 76 bucks with a bow. I have studied made notes of and documented my results of hunting according to the moon phase. You can bank on the factor the moon makes when hunting whitetail bucks. I am currently getting prepared to write my second book on archery hunting and moon phases. For a quick tip to my fellow archers, on a full moon sleep in, get in your tree stand around 10:00am.-2:00pm. It's hard to adapt to because of habit. Because it is embedded in our brains to hunt morning and evening only. From my experience: it took me 10 years to even try, but I will tell you this I wished I would have tried it 10 years earlier, I may have harvested a few more bucks that we know are there but never see!!! I am going to post my experience through this year 2012 to hopefully be helpfull to my fellow archers!!! Untill then good luck and please be safe in the stand!!! Ricky J. !!!
