Moon

As someone on here commented about the moon, I have my own theories and questions. I believe fox run more openly in the darkness of a smaller phased moon and or cloud cover partly due to the fact that they are constantly hiding from coyotes. Does anyone else share this idea? Anyone have anything to add about canine travel and bright moons?

Re: Moon

To counteract your argument, what if the coyote population is insignificant compared to the fox? Will they roam free then?

I think Fox and Coyote can see in the darkness (Moon or no Moon). Reds have a skittish, survivor behavior, but don't think Coyote is always on Reds mind.
Full Moon, I don't think any critter, other than Skunk, wants to be lit up, it's not their nature.

Here's something from another site...
On Oct 27 we had a full moon.
Research shows that -
Yesterday the Moon was in a Waning Gibbous Phase. This is the first phase after the Full Moon occurs. It lasts roughly 7 days with the Moonís illumination growing smaller each day until the Moon becomes a Last Quarter Moon with a illumination of 50%. The average Moon rise for this phase is between 9am and Midnight depending on the age of the phase. The moon rises later and later each night setting after sunrise in the morning. During this phase the Moon can also be seen in the early morning daylight hours on the western horizon.

Re: Moon

It fools me often. When the moon is Bright I often feel the catch will be low the next morning. Often I am mistaken and the catch is good. Over all I'd have to say the bright moon nights are less productive for all k9 has been my experience.

The difference between dreamers and achievers is action.
One try is worth a thousand guesses.
