Everyone has different opinions on this.

But my data suggests, for those hunting primarily mornings and evenings (traditional hunting times), a waning moon from 40% of the moon's face illuminated down to the New Moon (0% illuminated).

I would say the waxing moon ,a does reproductive cycle is influenced by the differant moon phases and starts to peak about a week surrounding the second full moon after the autumnal equinox so that means more bucks will on there feet lookin for something to hang out with

That is absolutely untrue. A doe's reproductive cycle is not influenced at all by moon phase.

Let me suggest this, starting mid October, get you rear end in the tree as much as you can! We wait all year for about a 4 to 6 week window. Get the wind in your favor and log in tree time.....

No, not luck. I'm sure some skill was involved. However, the moon had nothing to do with it. You see, I have a few more than five on my wall, bow killed and the moon never figured into killing a single one of them. One of the better ones, was killed on a 98-degree day with a full moon and he was rattled in. If you hunt "right", the moon is of little consequence. However, if you believe in it, it may make you hunt harder and lnoger.

If you hunt where the big deer are, you have an excellent chance of killing a P&Y buck if that is your desire and you have the skills. The rut will be just about when it has always been regardless of the moon. Killing five P&Y bucks is not much of a chore in Ohio. The minimum, 125-inches is not that great, especially for that state.

Hunting whenever it gets cool-cold increases your odds as they begin to travel more and cold weather does not depend on the moon, just as the rut does not. If you were to get fetal studies from Ohio, you would find that over the past 30-years, the rut has been within about 14 days of the same time every year and most commonly, within seven days. The moon, though powerfull, is not a factor. Don't confuse what you see with what is actually happening.

I take mine with salt.

That just about summs it up. The only thing I would add is pay more attention and tree time to two factors. (1) Try to hunt before severe weather changes of any kind. (2) Pay more tree-time to the colder days.
