I'm gonna get wet tomorrow in the tree, but I got a feeling that big boy is gonna walk tomorrow right after the rain. Anybody else have good luck in the rain deer hunting?

The first buck I ever killed was in the rain. I like to hunt daylight till dark and have seen many deer in the rain as well as in the middle of the day. I was in a box stand so that made it much more comfortable. I haven't seen much in heavy downpours, but in light to moderate rain as well as just after a storm has always been good for deer movement.

Good luck and I hope you get him!

I have seen some big bucks in the rain. Don't let the rain stop ya, it wont stop the bucks. I have shot a few nice bucks in the rain. And the big monster buck I shot in 09 I saw the year before crossing my neighbors field that I don't have permission to hunt. It was crossing the field in a downpour.

There are other examples.

I was hunting one morning in the rain and as soon as it stopped I got out of my stand and headed over to a scrape line. Just made it in time to shoot a nice 8 pt. Right after a downpour is the only time I key on scrapes.

i'm not a deer hunter but my father is the like the jaques cousteau of deer hunting. He's killer literally hundreds of deer in his lifetime.

the majority of his biggest deer were taken in the nastiest cold, wet, stormy weather.

I POSTED THIS LAST WEEK FOR ANOTHER HUNTER WHO NEEDED ADVICE WHEN THE BEST TIME TO HUNT WAS:

RAIN!!! IF YOU HUNT IN THE RAIN AND WAIT IT OUT YOU WILL GET RESULTS. AS LONG AS THE WIND IS NOT ABOVE 15 MPH THIS IS A GREAT TIME BECAUSE OTHER HUNTERS WILL NOT HUNT THE MISERABLE WEATHER. THINK OF IT THIS WAY, WOULD YOU STAY LAYING DOWN IN THE COLD AFTER SOMEONE JUST SPRAYED YOU WITH THE HOSE PIPE? THEY WON'T EITHER! IF YOU HUNT AND WAIT OUT THE MISERABLE WEATHER, YOU WILL GET GREAT RESULTS. I HAVE SEEN DEER EVERYTIME I HUNTED IN THE RAIN. IT ALSO ELIMINATES ALL SCENT FROM THE EQUATION, EVERYTHING IS IN YOUR FAVOR, NO PRESSURE, NO SCENT, AND DEER HAVE TO MOVE TO GET WARM. BUCKS ALSO FRESHEN SCRAPES AFTER RAIN BECAUSE THEIR SCENT IS WASHED OUT! TOUGH IT OUT AND YOU WILL SEE.
