thank you for the info i have been hunting for a long time mainley pheasant just started hunting deer the advice about hunting for them in the rain you were right i live in coventry ct the winds were 20 to 40 miles per hr by noon it got up to 70 degrees i didnt see a thing but tomarrow is going to be cold in the 30's so i should see quite a bit of movement i did see a buck 8pionter but he was so far away icould see him with the binoculers but he was laying down hope i see him tommarowI thought this was asked a few days ago. Im no expert but in my experiences a light rain may stimulate movement. Heavy rains will lay em down. I hate hunting in any rain because its a sight game only. My nose isnt too good and my ears are filled with other noises. Its sight only and possible to have one walk right past you if you happen to be looking the other way. I carry a garbage bag for a quick raincoat but rarely sit it out. I have Frogg toggs raingear but have never used it.
