I'm not big on hunting in the rain any more but people do and harvest nice deer in the rain. I would say it would boil down more to the type of tree your climbing because of the bark and the style of your stand, and of corse you should always use a safety harness. Here using climbers on public land they are not allowed to have spikes or any kind of add on that caz damage to the tree. But trees like oaks have thick bark and the bar on the climber digs in nice, after you get up there give you base two or tree bounces to REALY dig the bar into the tree.
