    What time do they come to the bait pile during other moon phases?

        I pay attention as much as i can, both to moon phase and moonrise and moonset times.

          I get in the field 1 hour before sunrise on a full moon and 60 minutes before sunrise on a dark moon phase. Adjust times accordingly between those two for other moon phases.

            I hunt when I get the chance, if the moon is full, I tend to hunt nearer known bedding areas during the day. For a new moon, I'll try and sit near to feeding areas in hopes they may come to food earlier. However, I rarely check the moon phase before I head for the stand. If I didn't notice the moon the night before, I'll sit where ever the spirit moves me.

              P-h-w, amen on the "spirit" moving you!
              I make stand selections more off "gut" instinct than moon phases, etc.!

                Let me guess WAM, 3600 seconds before sunrise on a half moon?

                  I do make a little extra effort to be in the woods when i feel the moon is right. ...But my "right" could be wrong.
