Do you hunt when it’s raining?

What are your thoughts about deer hunting in the rain.

Lots of water coming down this weekend here in NC, so I wanted to get your scientific opinion.


I rarely bow hunt when it’s raining.  This isn’t because deer aren’t active. It’s because almost all deer shot with a bow are recovered by following a blood trail.  Rain can diminish a blood trail rapidly.  

If it’s raining or about to rain hard, don’t shoot a deer with a bow!

Enjoy creation,
