Feeding Times reflect the local time zone running through the New Orleans/Slidell longitude.  No adjustment necessary for this zone.

Fish and game move in search of food in cycles relative to the moon's location to the earth.  The time spans listed above, which have been validated by analysis of 124 three-day fishing tournaments over a 17-year period, indicate the prime or major feeding time each day that starts at and along each World Time Zone Longitude Line during Standard Time and as Daylight Savings Time during the time it is in effect.  In the United States, the Time Zone Longitude Lines are 75 degree (Eastern), 90 (Central), 105 (Mountain), 120 (Pacific), 135 (Alaska), 150 (Hawaii).  The 15 degrees between each time Zone is 60 minutes which is 4 minutes for each degree.  To determine the feeding time for the best fishing and hunting within your Time Zone locations, advance 4 minutes for each degree West and back up 4 minutes for each degree East.  The next major feeding time (not listed on the calendar) will be approximately 12 1/2 hours later.  There are minor feeding periods that occur between the major feeding times.  The minor periods are typically fair to good periods with time spans about half as long as the major periods.  The markings in the circles indicate the relative intensity of that day's feeding cycle.  Remember, local weather extremes can affect wildlife feeding activity.  For questions or comments, you can call 404-373-7151.

Note from Brad:
  I have personally used this moon chart for over four years during a time that I hunted almost daily during deer season.  This is by far the most effective moon chart I've ever used and recommend it whole-heartedly.  Weather and temperature also have significant bearings on animal movement, but if you have to pick and choose the days that you take the time to sit in a tree, choosing the best feeding periods will give you an extra edge!
