PostSubject: Deer Hunting in Nasty Weather   Sat Nov 02, 2013 9:04 am

It has been really windy and wet for hunting in my neck of the woods this week but I've been in a tree every day. In the Nov. issue of D&D Hunting mag is an article by John Eberhart. He writes about: Why big bucks move in nasty weather. To quote the article: " Mature bucks in areas with heavy consequentail hunting pressure seem to feel more comfortable moving during inclement weather than during bluebird conditions " ie public land, where I hunt. He goes on to say : " It became clear that pressured mature bucks move more in daylight during inclement weather. "
I recall a hunting experience about five years ago, I was hunting on the ground with 100k wind gusts, tree branches falling every where, and this 10 point buck comes through, wind in his favor and I couldn't get a clear shot at him. It was a day before the gun hunt and I was amazed that deer would move in those conditions.
Sometimes the high winds will die right down for a bit just at sundown and deer will be on their feet and moving for a time before the wind picks up again. I will be out there this afternoon hoping for a mature buck to be touring.

I like to sit and I see more good bucks on those wet days. But, I also have a hard time spending a lot of time on stand when the weather is like that. That is where the blinds are good, take a sleeping bag and stay warm Cool
