Last week I heard in a plog you did, that moon phases has no effect on the rut, but how about a full moon on deer movement in general?


There have been and currently are 1,000’s of deer wearing GPS units (on collars). Other researchers and myself have analyzed data collected by these GPS units and found no relationship between any phase of the moon and the timing or amount of deer activity.  

Enjoy creation,
