Does the Moon Affect Deer Movement?


At the 2012 Southeast Deer Study Group meeting, QDMA talked to Marcus Lashley, a Ph.D. candidate at North Carolina State University, about his research into moon phases and deer movements. Marcus studied patterns of deer behavior relative to various moon phases. He also examined deer movements relative to the predictions of "Solunar Tables," which are supposed to predict feeding and movement times for game and fish.
