Anyone here use these as a guide to when you should hunt? I've looked at the info occasionally over the years but have always been skeptical. After days of dismal deer hunting here in NH this year, I started looking at the predictions. Most days I'd been out were predicted to be unexceptional. Yesterday was considered a "best" day. That turned out to be the case! The best time was off by about an hour but no complaints here.

Certainly I believe that animals are more active at night when the Moon is full or near full.

I need to look at that. So far this week has been dismal here as well. Dismal May be an understatement. Hoping tomorrow will have the planets aligned.
Is it available online?

The tables used to be published in Field & Stream. Now available on-line. Just do a search for "solunar tables".

Weather and fronts have a lot to do with movement but when the weather and moon match it can make for a great hunt! I’ve been using the moon phase for years and it does “up the odds” when conditions are right.

I do look at them, but it has no effect on when I go. I go as often as I can. Some times they seem to be on to something and other times not so much.

They definitely work for fishing, especially it the weather and dark of the moon are right.

Not sure they mean as much to land animals, but sure there is something there.
