    I will normally pass on bowhunting in the rain from the aspect of loosing a blood trail. Which many years ago I stuck a decent buck on a rainy October afternoon. Tracking ended up with me on my hands and knees. On the ground you couldn't tell blood from a wet red leaf without running it between you fingers.

    I'd loose blood trail then have to go back to last blood and start over. Which probably took me close to 2 hours to find a deer that maybe went 125 yds.

    It taught me personally to avoid the rain ... too much risk in loosing one. Which I've also shot feathers for a long time...rain don't mix with that too well either.

    Now if I'm gun hunting ... bring on the rain. Nothing I like better than sitting in a blind on a crappy day.

    Biggest Buck Ive taken was on a cool rainy Labor Day evening. He was moving earlier than usual and slipped up .I guess he figured no smart hunter would be out on a evening such as that , glad I was.
