Does deer activity change during a particular moon phase? How about during certain daylight hours of specific phases? Is the rut tied to moon phases?

Deer activity, or the lack of activity, during different moon phases, is probably being debated as you read this. Some swear by moon phases while others think it’s a joke.

No matter what side you lean on these reports will provide data specific to this profiled animal, allowing you to come to your own conclusions.

The bar graph provided, as seen below, shows the number of sightings for this particular profile.

Mousing over a bar will show you the moon phase, as well as the number of sightings.

Like other stats for profiled animals, photos in 15-minute increments are counted as 1 sighting to improve data accuracy. One trail camera will not be promoted above another depending on its settings or location.
