I was lucky enough to draw an X-7a tag but I'm facing a dilema I can only take one week of our work:smiley_doh:. Looking at the moon phases the first week of the season is a full moon week and the following will be a quarter moon week. Should I hunt the first week or should I wait till the second week??? I plan on doing a couple of scouting trips to narrow down a couple of areas. What are your thought is deer activity really affected by moon phases??

I would wait till the second week for two reasons....#1 I'm not sure that moon phases are all that important. #2 there will be no one there hunting the second week and you will have the place all to yourself and the deer won't be pressured.

I for one, definitely think moon phase has an influence on how animals react in the wild. But, as fishnhunt said, you also need to look at hunting pressure as well. See the below link, hopefully it can help you out.
