    Has anyone else heard of this event for Monday November 14th? They say it's to be the biggest supermoon since 1949. Should we be worried about my hunt this coming Saturday? I don't follow the moon phases, but this is going to be ridiculous right?

    11/11/11 we had a large moon that was pretty much high in the sky at about 5:30 AM when I was walking in. They were chasing like crazy. I had to stand at the base of my tree until way into shooting light before I could even climb up. It was one of the craziest hunts I've ever had. I ended up killing my first bow buck around 8:30 that morning. Hunt!

    I like to beaver hunt during all moon phases. ohhh, that wasn't the question. I think it will be a really good day to be in the woods.

    I haven't had great luck hunting after a full moon in the past but this one is supposed to be the fullest moon we will ever see. I'll be in the woods fore sure. I'm helping my buddy set up early AM so we shouldn't need a light lol
