John Alden Knight’s Original

An updated forecast of the daily feeding times of fish and game for every day of the year!



Your tables are uncanny in their accuracy for animal movement.  Last year I made the mistake of using another forecasting table and never saw an animal during their specified time frames.  When I used to trap, I would arrive 15 minutes before your time and sit on a beaver house and just like clockwork, up they would pop almost to the minute.  Thanks for the great tables.”

I have read practically everything written by John Alden Knight and his son Richard.  Each of their books provides historical insight into upland bird hunting and trout fishing.  This perspective is very evident to those of us who hunt and fish the areas of Pennsylvania – which John and Richard speak about.  I would highly recommend any of their books to those with hunting and fishing interests.

Every fisherman and hunter knows how variable his “luck” can be in pursuit of his sport. On some days, the fish will rise readily to his fly or the game will be abundant in the covers. On other days, the fish will ignore the choicest offerings or the game will be scarce and difficult to find. And that is as it should be. Shooting that is too good or fishing that is too easy soon grows tiresome.

On the good days there are always times when the fish seem more ravenous or the game more plentiful than at other times of that same day. These periods, as a rule, last about two hours. All of us try to plan to take advantage of those feeding periods at dawn and dusk. But the “odd-hour” periods which occur during the day – and night– must be stumbled upon by luck unless we have a guide.

That is where Solunar Tables® come into play.

For over 70 years the sportsmen in the United States and, increasingly, around the world have carried in their fishing vest or game pocket the handy annual edition of the Solunar Tables, the booklet that tells them the four times in 24 hours that fish and game will be most active.

Years ago, while there was still such as thing as legal market hunting, the men who made their living by shooting game and catching fish found that these odd-hour activity periods seemed to be in rhythm with the moon’s daily southings. They planned their work in accord with this schedule, calculated rather loosely, going afield when the moon was directly overhead or directly underfoot. “Moon Up – Moon Down” was the rule.

By taking this old schedule of “Moon Up – Moon Down” and applying modern science to it, we learned much of wildlife behavior. And in so doing we have learned to forecast, a year or more in advance, these odd-hour activity and feeding schedule, we have coined the word “Solunar”, a combination of “sol” and “lunar”. Thus, the odd-hour periods are called Solunar Periods.


Instructions on how to use the map on the back cover of the booklet to adjust the Solunar Tables.

The Major and Minor activity periods last 2 to 3 1/2 hours, and 3/4 to 1 1/2 hours respectively. To pinpoint when the best sport can be expected to begin in your area, first find the appropriate bold time zone rule on the map. Then find the 4-minute rule that is closest to your area on the map. If your area is to the left of the time-zone rule, add the number at the top to the corresponding time on the chart. If it’s to the right of the time-zone rule, subtract the number at the bottom from the corresponding time on the chart. During daylight savings time, add 1 hour to all times.
