a bad day of hunting in the rain beats a good day at work ... just thought I'd throw that in the mix ...

I am not into archery hunting myself, but anytime I can spend in the woods is my choice over not being in the woods ... Archery season starts here Oct. 1 (I think) with rifle season opening Nov. 2. I spent most of this past weekend working on a plow replacing an axle & some bearings getting ready to put in food plots within the next couple of weeks. All my feeders are up and running at 4 different properties ... and thankfully corn prices have dropped more than $2 / 50 lb bag over last year.

I shot my best buck sitting in cold day + rain in a poncho between rain storms, but that's the exception

Agree on the exception ... but about 7 years ago, I crossed a small creek on foot before daylight, got in a tripod stand and the bottom dropped out for the next couple of hours. A very nice 10 point strolled out chasing a doe, BANG, field dressed in the deluge and started dragging back to truck. Got to the creek which was now a torrential river ... what to do??? I carefully started dragging my prize into the creek, everything was fine but water was running 2-3 deep in the center ... deer carcass washed downstream with me having a kungfu grip on his antler while trying to hold my own balance in the rapids ... finally made it to the other side with totally flushed out deer in tow but was worn out from dragging him ~500 yards. Deer gotta eat sometime

it kinda scared me but I knew I would be fine crossing ... just didn't anticipate the deer parachute filling with the rushing water and trying to keep my balance since I had on about 50 lbs worth of clothes (since they were totally saturate with the unexpected rain water) ...

I don't mind hunting in the rain. The night the rain let up, after raining for 24 hours, I shot this:
