Ok so this friday the high is like 40 I think and shows some rain.. Sleet off and on all day... Would I be better off sitting in one spot all day or maybe sitting part if the time and doing some still hunting as well? . I plan on being I. The field all day because of the weather ... Just was thinking what might be better.. Thanks

Neither of those is a bad idea. I'd sit in my best spot until I haven't seen any deer for a while (maybe an hour), and then do some still hunting. I'd want to be back in a stand by 3 or 3:30 pm, though. Good luck

Food source all day long would be my choice.

Scatter corn in high traffic areas and hunt them the following day. Repeat until the season closes.

If your place inst of some size, I'd sit over the easy food.

Would Saturday be a better choice after it clears off?.. I just liked the thought of the cold wet weather that the deer would have to eat and move kinda all day compared to a day that was kinda sunny and little warmer
