If you can safely get there and the stand is dry...I would go. Place I hunt in ETex is flooded. Owner went in with a boat; Foot of water everywhere and His wife dropped a big 8 point.

I used to hunt in a driving sleet, huddled under an old USMC poncho, and in open tree stands when it rained or snowed. Upon further reflection...what was I thinking?

These days I'll take the Kubota, with roof and windshield, to the woods and sit in a heated non-leaking blind.

Can't kill them from the couch. The 2 biggest bucks I have ever taken were in snow storms with howling wind and temps in the single digits.

BP, if it's any consolation, our place is flooded with zero access. We can't hunt from our sofa's, but when the risk exceed's the potential reward, we bow out.

Better day's are ahead.
