Successful hunting means being in the right place at the right time. I have analyzed the lunar influences that help predict deer activity and movement patterns for over 28 years, based on over 2000 daylight sightings of free range deer, and have compiled this information into an easy-to-follow guide that hunters can use to plan their strategies.
