Where can i find moon tables that describe the best hunting times for a particular day? I searched the threads but couldnt seem to find anything beneficial? Thanks for the help

I'm not sure where you can go to find this online but I have an alternative solution:

Go to this thread:

and get the Casio watch. I just bought one and it does exactly what you are wanting.

thanks game hunter.. I was thinkin about getting one but i wanted to compare a moon table with what the watch actually says.. Kind of skeptical about the watch.. have you used one?

No, just got it today. After entering my location information into the watch I did fine a moon chart online for my area to compare it to. It was spot on for moon phases, sunrise, and sunset. The chart I looked at though had nothing about hunting though.

You may want to check

I used the Moon Guide last year for the first time and it seemed pretty accurate. I think it is a little more detailed than the Casio watch in that it will tell you whether to hunt open areas, trails, near bedding areas etc.

I bought the Casio watch a few days the jewelry dept. at WalMart :wink:

If you would like to check moon phases, moon rise/set, as well as sunrise/set, go to this website and enter your location and date. It is the US Naval Observatory website:

I bought a moon dail at cabela's. It will tell you the best time that the deer will be on the move. A few weeks ago I was driving home from work at 1:30 p.m. and there were 7 or 8 deer in this soybean field about 200 yds. off the road, sunny and 80+ degrees. When I got home I looked at my moon dail and It predicted the early afternoon movement.
