Will rains affect the timing of the rut?

It’s been raining here in middle Georgia for several days and I was just wondering the best times to hunt around rainy weather and If the rain will have any affect on the rut


Unless flooding is extremely bad rain won’t likely impact timing of the rut.  

I don’t bow hunt during heavy rains as the rain destroys blood trails.  I like hunting just when the rain is letting up!  I like hunting when a cold front is passing even more. Hopefully the rain will be pushed out of your area by a cold front.  Cold fronts this time of year often result in substantial daytime buck activity!

Enjoy creation,
