Wayne Laroche is a respected fish biologist. He’s also an avid whitetail hunter who spends the entire deer season in northern Maine chasing big woods bucks. He became interested in the moon’s influence on whitetails after researching the impact the moon has on Grouper fish in the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico. Afterwards, as he hunted the Maine woods every year, he noticed distinct fluctuations in whitetail activity patterns. After studying the yearly changes he began to wonder if the moon was affecting the way whitetails behaved during November, just as it had influenced the fish he had studied years before.
