    Lunar
    I may not be correct, I would assume that viper may know better.But mine shows only one major movement time and that is 12:22-2:22PM, middle of the day. The minor moves are 7:08-8:08AM and 6:43-7:43PM. So all in all this is saying they could move all day long? Who really knows? Just get in early and stay as long as your rump can stand it?

    Times
    NC8 is right. The times will vary by a few minutes from place to place. The moon is full so it's overhead at mid-night and underfoot at mid-day.

    Right one GT
    Yessir, like I say, if you aint amongst'em, you aint gonna see'em. Unlike GT, I'll watch the moon alright, I'll watch it as it passes over..lol Viper and GT is right, they will feed certain times, particularlly in the early season, but when I get out there, pretty much aint got nowhere else to be, so I'll hang out a while....can't wait to get amongst'em.

    Plan
    A MEN on that brother! Thats my plan, been my plan, and that plan works better than any other plan I have heard of. The bottom line is stay on stand as long as you can, then stay one more hour. With a comfortable stand it really is like childs play. On fire here with FEAVER! Nine more days then smack down city. Call me crazy but i just left WalMart and purchased two jars of crunchy peanut butter. Figured I would give it a shot on a shooting lane by trail. Best of luck to all.

    LOL
    LOL, man back in the day I woke up while partically falling out of a loc-on and have never fell asleep on stand since. What actually woke me was my rifle hitting the screw in tree steps on the way down to the ground. Really scary and taught me a very valuable lesson. And I will not forget the snacks. Man, can't wait. Best of luck!

    Brother, the only thing you should mix with molasses is a good ole buttermilk biscuit. Good luck with the mix.
