This article offers guide to scheduling peak hunting and fishing times in the U.S. During the fall, it is probably 30 minutes before official sunrise, and 30 minutes after official sunset. To determine the official hunting hours in an area, the Web site of the U.S. Naval Observatory may be visited. The U.S. Naval Observatory is the official source for sunrise and sunset data, and the information it provides is used by state game management agencies to determine legal shooting times. The Hannon's Moon Tables are also presented, which have been formulated to provide hunters with the dates and times of the greatest wildlife activity.
