    Always go out on a full moon, otherwise its too dark and you'll walk into trees and the like

    If its too light on full moon, close one eye and hey presto its that bit darker

    There are 3 things which I believe will bugger up an early mornings stalk:
    1. Hard Frost.
    2. Cold wind from between North and East.
    3. Full or very bright moon.

    A combination of all 3 and I'll not bother getting up!
    I think the full moon gives them an easier time to roam around and feed at night which means they can back back to bed early? I've never had much success after a full moon. They don't seem so keen to appear very early in the evenings either if there is a full moon due.
    Oh, and a fourth:
    4. Bad hangover!

    So with regards to the full moon, there on the move most of the night or should we say nights with the lead up

    to the full moon. In which case you would possibly turn a blank the following day. ?

    Rgsds, Buck.

    PS. Never suffer from hangover's

    In my experience a spot on answer.

    I have been told the same thing about not bothering after a full moon yet my experience tells me different having been successful the morning after the last two.
