Will be hitting some public land this weekend and just curious what everyone's thoughts are on hunting when a front is coming through like this? I'll be out there either way just looking for opinions lol

Fronts are good; from my experience deer don't move too good in the rain, that's why I hit the ranch early this week and got back this morning. Hard to track a blood trail in the rain and mud.

^^ x2. They will move after the rain a neusance mist drizzle will get them moving really well add some colder temps and the woods come alive. Il be out with my lil ones in the morning for there first crossbow hunt. Fingers are crossed. The next front that hits down here on Tuesday is looking even better to drop temps I hunt the hill country and will be low to mid 40s and il be in the blind hoping this moon and temp drop gets a prerut going. Last year they were pushing does hard this time of season.

I'm sure hoping that front gets them moving; all I've had in range this week were small two year old bucks. I'm thinking of hitting the ranch this coming week depending on the front; I'll sure be watching the weather. laugh

These North Texas storms we're having right now is the reason I left the ranch this morning. I try to hunt three or four days a week... I'll be head out Tue. or Wed. again. Hopefully it's not a mud hole.

How'd everybody do? I'm still out here for a couple more minutes, seems like it [censored] them down this morning. I put corn out last night and it was still there in the morning which is unusual. They are active this evening, just can't get them to come in. Doesn't help I'm at public land and I've had two people walk out in the last thirty minutes making a bunch of noise and such frown

They moved in the 15 min window we had when it drizzled instead of rain this morning. My daughter for a 6 pnt. Back in the blind in the morning with the youngest. Looking for her first deer. Good luck everyone
