At The Ranch: Hunting in the Rain

Thinking about heading out to hunt in the rain?

Hunting in weather like rain is something that scares and stops people from heading out. If it’s torrential down pouring, it’s probably best to stay indoors. If there’s slight rain or a light drizzle, it may be the perfect time for a hunt. Weather like rain can cause deer to get up out of their bed and move around. There are a few other factors that play in your favor if you plan to head out for your hunt in the rain. Deer use rain to cover their movement and you can too. Using rain to cover your noise and movement can help you get into the perfect spots for your hunt as well. Another great factor of heading out in the rain is that it really can cut down on your ground scent, allowing you to find better positioning.
