WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO FISH OR HUNT?


Of course, the answer is "Whenever you can go!" But if one can only go for a limited period of time, it makes sense that it be when success is most predictable. That's where DataSport enters the picture.


"Our systems show anglers, hunters, birders and wildlife photographers how to make the best use of that limited time," said John Lehman, President of DataSport, Inc. "For over a combined 85 years we have produced The Fish and Game Forecast and Hannon's Moon Clock to help outdoor enthusiasts know the times that they are most likely to encounter animals, fish, birds and wildlife. The most successful outdoor experiences have been proven to occur during periods of peak animal activity and we can predict when these periods will occur by understanding effects of the moon and sun on the earth and how this affects all living things."


The 47th edition of The Original DataSport Fish & Game Forecaster and the 39th annual Moon Clock are now available for $4.99. Outdoor enthusiasts have the option to add the IOs apps by visiting the App store, searching "datasport, inc." and purchasing "FishCast and HuntCast 2020" (from The Fish and Game Forecaster) or "FishTimes and HuntTimes 2020" (from Hannon's Moon Clock). "Having access to peak activity time information without leaving the boat or woods makes your time more productive," said Lehman, "and there's no need to use location data since the information is valid throughout North America and more."


Free time to pursue your favorite outdoor sport is becoming more valuable. To learn more go to www.moontimes.com.

You can get solunar tables free online from many sources. Why pay for a service/app?

I was an avid fisher for over 40yrs, the moon calendar or what ever you want to call it, IS not always accurate, to many variables, wind, fronts,ect.

When my big toe starts to hurt it's time to fish. When my shoulder and my big toe start to hurt it 's time to hunt.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

"WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO FISH OR HUNT?"
What a silly question. That's like asking 'when's the best time to get some?'

I use the Bass Forecast app. At times, I've seen it predict a feeding period precisely. Catching few for two hours and then when the predicted feeding period hit, catching 20 in the same time frame.

There's something to it. AND barometric pressure is a big influence as well. My wife's grandmother could check a barometer and tell you when to go........and it worked.

you can use all these lunar tables and such, its hit and miss, one thing that never failed me full moon was my nemeses, depending on the month it seemed mid day was good. my favorite times were on the water at day light and at dusk.

The best time to hunt or fish is when you’re out of town?

During a waxing gibbous I almost never hunt. During a waning crescent I almost always fish. Full moons are for sacrificial religious ceremonies and new moons are for sleeping in.

Never worried too much about this. I don't believe a horny buck is going to sleep in much during the rut.

Go with your instincts, keep an eye on whats around you. If it feels right and the game is moving then hunt or fish. I have had the best success after a good hard rain.

Just put in your zip code
These times are the most spot on for fishing I've found and conditions can change things for hunting.
