Solunar Tables

Do any of you guys know where I can find a good solunar table. I have found plenty of charts that describe when the moon is over head and underfoot, but I would like to see a chart that says this is what the moon and sun is doing, and these hours are the optimal times to be in the woods. I'd like to really put it to the test. I haven't seen good movement since the first week of the season, and the movement in the mornings was def. different a week ago than it has been right now.

I guess I'm just trying to figure out the best way to hunt the moon, and Im sure it will take several years because at this point I'm no expert by any means. I just try and hit the woods hard when theres a new moon and the week before or after.

any links to charts or recommendations would be nice. thanks

Just remembered my garmin etrex legend gps tells what the moon and sun will be doing on a given day, and the best times for hunting and good times for hunting. It will say something like best times 2am-330am and good time 630-8am. I just want to try and put something like that to the test. The real solution is just spend as much time as I can stand to sit, but Id like to see if they really move during these times.

Many things are tied to the moon, whether they like it or not.

The reason people came up with these tables was because they noticed there was a pattern, and actually decided to see how much of one was there.
