It's been my experience that you see the most in crappy weather. Not a downpour of course, but blowing mist has always been good to me.

I agree. This past weekend when the front came through southeast Texas early morning it rained off and on but not hard at all. It quit completely around 10 am I saw the most activity I have seen all year and saw movement until around noon. As Creek said a mist or light rain seems to be the ticket sometimes.

If it get heavy they will hole up, but have no problem in slight to moderate from what I have seen.

What this man just said, bucks will freshen up their scrapes after a rain.

Yes! The mature bucks love to move when they think people aren't dumb enough to be out in the bad weather...It seems they think that anyways..lol..Ive shot 3 of the 7 big bucks that I have shoulder mounts of while it was raining.

Red River county, nothing moves in the rain. Not even hogs. I will be there though.

Here in Menard County and further west, deer do not move much in a rain, as soon as it breaks, deer are everywhere. When hunting in the east, doesn't seem to affect them as much as they are accustomed to it.
I hate hunting in the rain.
Adios,
Gary

A couple of nice things about hunting in a light rain, your scent, movement and noise are masked by the rain. I like to still/stalk hunt and nothing beats a light rain for getting closer to those wild critters. Pay close attention to the wind, for the sense of smell is the one thing a deer never doubts..

I'll be out in it. I like hunting during and just after a light rain, lots of critters will be moving.
