    I've never had any luck,at all,with Solunar tables. I learned when I was just a little kid to watch the weather. Wind from the east,fish bite least. Wind from west,fish bite best.

    In regards to hunting ruts: the only table that is 100% accurate is the "Generic astronomy calculator" . It's used to calculate times for sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset for many cities, with daylight saving time and time zones taken in.

    In other words the 'weather' has little to nothing to do with the estrus cycle...that is triggered based on hours of daylight.

    We try and book our yearly trip around a new or full moon. Iím not really sure if it makes a difference. If anything, the moon in the sky at night is beautiful to watch.
    Other than that I go fishing when I have time so the tables donít affect my fishing. Damn work gets in the way!

    I’m sure it makes a difference, I just don’t seem to be able to figure it right. lol. It was easier for me to figure out Moose. If you hunt Deer in high pressure areas, they go nocturnal and/or move out real quick.

    Mating seasons and migration are two items that are triggered by lighting clues. In part by the length of daylight to darkness periodicity. Another factor that may play into it is the level of light intensity. The proximity of the earth to our sun plays out in the earth’s orbital path. At the time of the spring equinox the sun is further away from the sun than during the fall equinox so the spring mating season is more prolonged than the fall pseudo-mating season the latter being scarcely a blip in the behavior patterns of some of the species. This may suggest that sunlight intensity as well as periodicity plays something of a role. I’m still recalling a grouse apparently drumming away for a mate late into the deer season, I’m not exactly sure what may have upset his endogenous clock.
