The number one factor in deer movement is weather. Included in that is temperature and barometric pressure change. Another large factor is food source. It is certainly possible to high movement under almost any condition except blinding rain, snow or fog.

One of the major consideration in deer movement is their ability to detect danger. Therefore they tend to move less under conditions that hamper that. Vision and smell are paramount and to a lesser degree, hearing. On rainey, snowy and windy days, deer tend to move less and for shorter periods of time. It is important to consider where you are hunting and adjust to the most normal conditions there.
