went hog huntin this past weekend and we were skunked, come to think about it we didnt even see any skunks, much less any other animals. spot and stalk open oat field and nuthin hog signs every where. just wondering if it was because there was so much light from the moon? thanks for any replies.

I wondered the same thing. I also was out this weekend, bright moon lit night, saw one coon. Plenty sign, but no hogs. I'd like to know myself.

I've thought about that myself, but can't put a pattern to it. I've seen a lot of hogs and no hogs under both moonlit and moonless nights. I think too many other things come into play than just the moon. I did see quite a few hogs on the hunts I had during the recent full moon phase though.

Greetings,
Been hunting 2 or 3 times a week for the last 4 weeks for coyotes and hogs.
Shot 4 coyotes on moonless nights.
Shot 1 coyote and 1 pretty nice boar on full moon nights last week.
I've been laying for the boar for a few weeks by patterning him with sons game cameras and how often he hits the pig pipe.
I was sitting in a tripod stand setup in a small mesquite break by out stock tank.
My son has his feeders on one side of the tank and I have the pig pipe on the other side.

Personally, I think the cooler weather has them coming out sooner in the evening.



Cheers,
Vern1
