My only advice to you is to hunt during the rain even if it is mid-day. Deer love to move as fronts move in and out. Before rain comes in, deer move heavily and feed during the showers. The afternoon or morning following th rain should be hunted as well because often cold fronts will follow the rain.

I have seen some of my biggest bucks during light--heavy down pours.

well said rebel twanger!! Now I got another weather question I want to hear yalls thoughts on. WIND. Yeah a little wind does not matter in my book. What my question is about is the winds that are in the 8-18 mph range.

Question 1
Do yall see much deer activity during the peak rut on windy days?

And question 2
During non rut times do yall see less deer activity on windy days?

its been my experience that deer dont like to move in wind that generates lots of noise.they get spooked by all the sound and movement.during the rut all bets are off deer do strange things

Mild Winds have never been a big problem for me It's when the wind really starts picking up and gusting in the 30-40 mph range or higher, that's when I notice there's less activity, I have seen Deer in high Winds but those sightings are RARE,,, Not sure about other hunters but RARE for me anyway.

When the winds get up I look for quiter places like cut overs and pines. It's also when I like to still hunt through an area. Four years ago I took a nice eight pointer slowly working my way through a two year old clear cut. I topped a little rise and he was working his way up the side of the next hill.
