Full Moon-Time of Day

8 posts in this topic

Well obviously it's over now till next month, but my favorite month's full moon did not turn out quite like I had hoped. When the days were approaching I thought it was going to be the best full moon we have had in a few years. We had warm weather for comfortable hunting, clear skies leading up to the full moon days, plenty of snow covering the fields, and fairly low wind speeds for a more than favorable calling set up. everything was looking fine but it was the warm weather that ended up ruining it. Who would of thought we would of been able to complain about rain ruining the moon in feb.? Well back to hunting during daylight hours now, so thats brings up my question, What is everyones favorite time of day to hunt? I generally try to go whenever I can which usually translates into evening hunts, but it seems like there is more activity in the morning. What do ya'll think?

I have found that they move more in the morning than in the late afternoon hours. I don't have any idea why this would be. Either way i still prefer to hunt them at night

There are actual studies that show coyotes are more active from the hours of 10:00 in the morning till 2:00 in the afternoon on full moon periods.

The last full moon, we hunted all day, and see 28 coyotes, and called in 9, it just shows that they are a very unpredictable animal, and hunting all day can be good

Best is to night hunt them, but otherwise mid morning seems to be allright for seeing them. I was out in NDak the febuary moon, and those seem to be out best in the am until 2pm. Shot 5 that week and went back last sat and sunday and got 4 more, with few misses. Might go back for the March moon, we had super wind the night we hunted at night. Did call in a 6pack the only not so windy call, one loner in the hurricane calls.

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
