Understanding the connection between deer movement and the moon, and why the MoonGuide works so well predicting big buck activity! Man has long understood the effects of the gravitational pull of the moon, even beyond the obvious like the earth’s daily rising and falling ocean tides.

When monster bucks are on a strict feeding pattern, there’s not much reason or need...
