DataSport, Inc. Activity tables for the outdoors: fishing, hunting, bird watching and photography For centuries, people who spent a great deal of time outdoors have noticed that there are noticeable periods of activity which occur throughout the day.

When one spends time in the woods, there are periods of time when there is no perceptible noise or movement. At other times, there is a marked increase in the scurrying about of squirrels, other small game, birds and even larger animals such as deer. Through the years, many have tried to explain and chronicle these times. One of the earlier and more successful of these people was John Alden Knight

Here's a great, heartwarming story from the son of a long time Fish & Game Forecast customer. You'll get the message:

"Circling back one more time. Travelled back to northern Minnesota to take care of dad’s affairs. He passed away in his sleep, in his own bed, surrounded by family on 2/23/19.
I snooped through his things, found all his Fish and Game Forecasters from 1977 to present, with everything important in his life recorded on the pages. It’s priceless to me.

Thanks again for the generosity, dad certainly was aware of his condition at this point. The only thing in dad’s 2019 forecaster is his date of passing. We chose to have his celebration of life on May 11th, the fishing opener in Minnesota.

The gift of his life’s experiences recorded is priceless to me - thank you again for making that possible over 40 years! The 1977 edition said 4th edition, sad that he missed the first three!!"

Here's a point of view from one of the country's biggest online outdoor information sources. What do you think?

"In the meantime—one of the best things we can probably do is go fishing. Angling is a sport of low human density, lots of fresh air and plenty of sunshine, all of which give us the best shot at staying healthy. The same might be true for spring turkey hunting, hiking or camping. Getting outdoors also helps us reduce stress, something most of us can use right now."

Happy Fall! "The Autumnal Equinox" when the amount of daylight and night are "equal." Almost. Sunrise and sunset are at approximately the same time and early morning fishing is not quite as early as it was. On Block Island, RI, sunrise on July 4th was 5:15 AM; today -- 6:35 AM.

Something important to remember at this time of year:
LEAVE WILDLIFE BABIES WHERE THEY BELONG - IN THE WILD!!
Observing wildlife in its natural habitat is always a unique privilege. Taking a good photo or two provides an even more lasting memory. But once you've done that, let well enough alone. Leave wildlife babies where they belong -- in the wild. (Thanks to The Outdoor Wire)

EarthSky - Earth, Space, Human World, Tonight

With tonight’s biggest Supermoon of the year, here is an excerpt from our friends at earthsky.org that talks about the effect of the moon (and sun!) on tides. Enjoy!9

In most places, but not everywhere, there are two high tides and two low tides a day. The difference in height between high and low tides varies, as the moon waxes and wanes from new to full and back to new again. The moon and sun are primarily responsible for the rising and falling of ocean tides. However, for any particular spot on Earth’s surface, the height of the tides and their fluctuation in time also depend on the shape of your specific beach and the the angle of the seabed leading up to your beach, plus your larger coastline and the prevailing ocean currents and winds.

All of that said – in the day or two following the February 19 supermoon, which happens to be 2019’s biggest supermoon (the full moon closest to perigee this year) – you can expect higher-than-usual tides.

Based in Austin, TX, the EarthSky team has a blast bringing you daily updates on your cosmos and world. We love your photos and welcome your news tips.

Why a totally eclipsed moon looks red | EarthSky.org

TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE - MOON EXCITEMENT - A total, "bloodmoon," Supermoon eclipse will occur starting at approximately 9:30 PM (EST) on the evening of Sunday, January 20th. Hopefully, the sky will be clear so you can see the start of the eclipse and watch it become total at around 12 midnight the morning of the 21st. The moon is at perigee that night meaning it is closest to the earth in its elliptical orbit which makes it look bigger. You might think that during the total eclipse, the moon would look dark but, for a reasonably complicated reason, it will actually look red and therefore it's called a Blood Moon. Sorry Blue Moon-ers, this one's red! If you are interested in why the moon looks red, here's a link to our friends at earthsky.org to find out the reason. https://earthsky.org/space/why-does-the-moon-look-red-during-a-total-lunar-eclipse

If Earth didn't have an atmosphere, then, when the moon was entirely eclipsed within Earth's shadow, the moon would would appear dark ...

Starting this Wednesday, 1/9...The days will begin getting longer. The sunrise is at the latest time until tomorrow when it starts to rise a bit earlier each day. Since December 14th the sunsets have been getting later, too so, if you're in the northern part of the country, get out the fishing equipment and get ready. Spring is not exactly around the corner but at least we're headed in the right direction!

Super Blue Moon eclipse on January 31 | EarthSky.org

WE have always believed that strange things occur in the animal, fish and bird kingdoms during an eclipse. In the US, it will happen shortly before dawn on January 31st. Keep your eyes and ears open and let us know what unusual activity you see. SO MUCH is being written about the Super Blue Moon Red Moon! Here's a great place to find out anything you want to know like when you can see it; where you can see it and LOTS more. http://earthsky.org/tonight/super-blue-moon-eclipse-on-january-31?mc_cid=2b03f7cb3a&mc_eid=ebf4fbed66#partial

The super Blue Moon happens before sunrise on January 31, 2018 for North America and Hawaii. It happens after sunset on January 31 for the Middle East, Asia, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand. Details here.

WINTER!!! Everyone knows it arrives on Thursday, but did you know.... that the sun sets more slowly on the days surrounding the solstices...that, even though December 21st is the shortest period of sunlight of the year (in the Northern Hemisphere), the earliest sunsets happen before the 21st.... that the December solstice starts the shortest season of the year -- about 89 days compared with the summer solstice that's about 94 days...and, finally, that we wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday and a Happy, Healthy New Year with tight lines and a full game bag.

MOONS, MOONS AND MORE MOONS!!
Sunday December 3rd will be the last SUPERMOON of 2017 but the first of THREE-IN-A-ROW Supermoons including January 2nd and 31st. And all you moon-o-philes know what that means: a BLUE Moon in January. The supermoon occurs when the sun and moon are completely opposite each other and, when that happens, moonrise and sunset are at the same time

On top of that...there will be a lunar eclipse on January 31st but most of us will not be able to see the total part of it -- just the beginning. It happens just before the moon sets. You can find out lots more from our friends at earthsky.org at this link: http://earthsky.org/tonight/super-blue-moon-eclipse-on-january-31

The super Blue Moon on January 31, 2018, passes right through the Earth's umbral (dark) shadow, to present a total eclipse of the moon. Details of the eclipse, and eclipse times, here.

Hunting and Fishing Effects During the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse

We have always felt that a solar eclipse affects all wildlife and have said so in our booklet "Forecasting Fish & Game Activity...Myth or Science."

Watch for the lunar eclipse this Friday evening. OK...so it's not a total eclipse but it will be very subtle and, with clear skies, you should be able to see it in the US. Best time for viewing is around 19:44 (7:44PM) EST and an hour earlier each as we cross the US time zones. Send us some pictures of how it appeared in your backyard....
