Hogs will move in the rain. Things might slow down if it storms really bad, but if it's just off an on rain you'll be fine.. Might even help a little. Good luck

During any 24 hour period, hogs are going to move. I have shot some very nice hogs between bands of heavy rain or after a night of heavy rain.

Rain does not stop hogs. It may slow some of the activity, but nothing will stop them from eating. The only question is whether there is something they want where you are.

hogs must be eating under cover of darkness, confused2 or we solved the problem here. flag

Sometimes the softening of the ground caused by rain makes it easier for the hogs to root. My perception is that the soft ground makes the hogs more active, but ymmv.

In addition to the ground being softer, the rain will also bring up grubs and may also bring scent from other things that are below the surface.
Edges of waterways that tend to spill out and accumulate debris in pools or eddies and also where water is left standing after the receding water, these will tend to have active rooting.

dueling with ansroid. third time posting. tis also best time ta dig with posthole digger, fill with corn & desiel & wait till hogs come back & make it bigger. muyloco i've been tested rofl actualy Kbar tis right. hogs will follow the creek beds & streams wetter areas tis were ya find the rooting activity. as pappy always say's: proof tis in de pudding . enjoy the hunt, stay Safe flag
