I was planning on heading to my lease in Coleman County on Friday but now see that it is supposed to rain all night and all day Saturday. I have never had much luck hunting in the rain. What do you think? who out there has luck hunting in the rain. would you go or would you hold of another week.

If you stay home it won't rain a drop at your place...

If I have planned to go and it starts to rain, I stick to my plans. Of course, there is a difference between a sprinkle and a deluge

Yes. A light rain won't bother them at all.
If it's a heavy rain, I still go and try to be hunting when the rain stops. That is a key time.

Especially this time of year as the bucks are up as much as possible anyway.

A light, cold rain gets makes them hungry and gets them to moving, especially will it breaks for brief periods during the day.

Short of a turd floater hunting the rainy days can be great. Two of my personal best came on rainy days. One was on a cold drizzly morning and the other was a warm steady morning rain. If you get lucky and it rains all night and most of the next day be in the stand when it stops. GO TIME!

All three of my "trophy" WT bucks have been shot in a drizzle/light rain. So, you can bet I'm out in it! Don some rain gear and get out there.

If it is hunting season and I can hunt, I don't care what the weather is doing. I am there.

Yeah I am watching the weather. It calls for 100% chance starting 9 or 10 friday night and not stopping until 7 or 8 on saturday. Then the wind picks up sunday early with strong gusts.

If its a turd floater with lightning I will stay in camp, but when it starts slacking off its to the stand I go. I will be at lease wether I get to hunt or not. Away from the hustle and bustle of work and honeydo's
