This up coming Turkey day weekend appears to be a cold rainy mess about to happen.
So what changes and what do you do any different?

Try to stay dry. And wipe off my glasses, and scope, and binoculars a lot more.

Stay home. I don't hunt quail in the rain.

It depends on what you have to retreat to / recover at.

If you have the ability to get warm, dry, clean etc after the hunt, then go at it hard to the best that the situation allows.

Hunt the best you can, then get yourself situated when you are done.

I can (and have) pushed through a lot of crud when I know that I can get back to "normal" when I am done.

I sleep in and go to the blind later, about 10 or 11 and watch all afternoon and until dark.

That's a shame. Watching dogs work beats watching tv any raining, or artic panhandle winter day of the week. IMO

Sit longer. On a dry day I'll sit from 9 to 4 or so. Rainy days I'll sit all day long, I've killed my best bucks during and just after a good rain.

Stormy weather days I don't bother going out until the last line gets past my area.

I retreat to my box blind on rainy days, instead to stalking or using a tree stand...problem is the Trinity is still out of its banks at my place. The blind is dry, but my food plot and my entire field of view from the blind is still under about a foot of water, given today's river level. More rain tomorrow is not going to help.

Not much... I hunt the wind always, and funnels most of the time.
