    Moon phase boooo

    I've hunted with a guy who called in the first elk I killed with a bow. He previously guided in Montana and Wyoming and he says archery hunting elk on a full moon is his favorite time to hunt. He said calling in elk at noon is the easiest.

    I'm actually starting to believe him after the last few years of not heading back to camp after the elk lay down after first light

    What's the theory there? They run all night, go to bed early and then get up around noon to stretch and water?

    A herd bull is more likely to leave his cows when he knows where they are and have laid down. He's comfortable going to check something out and grouchy because he's tired.

    Makes sense Lax... Deer hunting mid day can be very good during a full moon.

    I've seen it work great. Although I had a premium tag in an area with a high bull to cow ratio, I called in most Bulls from 11-1. In the mornings when they were all out feeding, I couldn't call any of the satellite Bulls or herd Bulls in but I could call in lots of them after they laid down in the junipers. I bugled in the herd bull from 500 yards across a sage flat at 1pm because 30 cows were laying down in the high sage. Give it a try!

    Without the gravity influence of the moon I would have a tough time digging clams and fishing chinooks.
