We hunted the full moon last year in Unit 30 and it was ok in the morning, by 10 am on, everything was bedded down and we did not see any movement in the evenings. At 2 am in the morning, the moon was straight overhead and I swear you could have read a newspaper by it.

Good luck and get out as early as you can to a vantage point to catch movement and watch where your animals go to bed. We were on the side of the mountain by 5:30/6 am and could already start glassing. I had to wait until legal time to shoot, even though I could see my deer for nearly an hour before I could legally shoot.
