I've got a trip to Menard, and rain or shine, we're gonna try to put a hurting on the WTs, pigs, Axis, and Blackbuck at my buddy's ranch. Gotta say, the only thing I'm really disappointed in is that there won't be any "around the fire" time outside, as it's literally going to rain all weekend.

Really looking forward to some actual winter weather though. Might even, dare I say, hang a deer overnight after field dressing? Unimaginable.

I'm fired up. Who else?

Should be heading out tomorrow as well. Calling for steady but light rain. May have to park my truck at the gate and ferry gear to camp cuz our roads are awful with even a little bit of rain.

Yeah, as someone used to hunting a blackland river bottom near Houston, the idea of 2-3 inches of steady rain terrified me. My place is like oatmeal when that happens in the winter.

My buddy's place is extremely rocky soil and he laughed that I even asked if we'd still be able to get around the ranch.

Yep, I'll be in Llano all weekend. That is, unless we get a whole bunch of rain all at once. If the creek across from the cabin floods, I could be stuck there for an extra day (Oh, the horror). It looks like a good steady rain in the forecast so hopefully it will keep the deer and pigs moving.

No, I no longer hate them enough to fight such heavy rain and cold.

But good luck to those heading out.

Loc: Fort Worth - Hunt in Eastland ...
Heading down Friday after work. Will have to park at the gate and walk in. I've shot a nice buck or two in the rain. Not thunder storms, but a steady rain. Especially when it lets up for 30 minutes or so the woods just seem to come alive with all sorts of creatures.

I am heading out to Castell in Llano County this weekend. Will hunt Friday PM - Sunday AM. This will be the first time for me to hunt in expected rain. I have always been lucky and planned last minute trips around forecasted rain.

I don't know what to expect when hunting in the rain. I am hoping to get lucky. Good luck to all this weekend.

I would be going if I didn't already have my 1 buck tag (AR county) punched. I've had good luck hunting in rain, as long as it isn't a really heavy rain. I'm gonna try to get all my Christmas decorations, shopping, etc. done so that I can head to the lease the next 2 weekends.

Hoping there isn't a whole lotta of lightning. That, I do not care for.
