Remember about 15 years ago they came out with a round / circular cardborad deal that would tell you the "best" time to hunt for a particular day according to moon lunar location? Based on when moon was either directly overhead and or directly beneath your position on the earth...

Can you still get those?

Is there a web page that simply gives you the same info? Thanks!

Easier to download a free app for your phone.

I think Bass Pro carries something like that.

I've always used the website below because it provides information for any day, anywhere in the world. It also provides sunrise and sunset data. The peak feeding period begins one hour before moon transit, and then ends one hour after. A lesser eeding periods occurs 12-1/2 hours later. In other words, the theory is that fish and game are most active when the moon is directly overhead, and then again about 12-1/2 hours later. I have never followed the belief the minor feeding periods occur half-way between these two periods.

Looks like opening day morning should be a decent one this year, with the middle of the lesser feeding period happening around 9:30am. Definitely a morning to stay late.

I should add that times can differ from one source to another. That's why I have always followed the belief that the peak time is when the moon is directly overhead. It's simple and straight forward.
