    I always figured it would be hard to blood trail a deer when the rain is washing the blood away, that's why I won't bow hunt while it's raining

    If i could id be there in a millisecond. Evenings like tonight are a special thing to a deer hunter. Thats just my oppinion but ill take a evening like this over a sunny bluebird day any day.

    I don't like a hard rain but a drizzle to sprinkle with little to no wind is awesome. My issue is that I don't like blinds so I'm literally sitting out in it. If it gets hard enough while I'm out, I'll slip down and crawl in one if I have to.

    I never have bow hunted in the rain because of the possibility of losing an animal to a washed away blood trail.

    Like a slow drizzle - covers a lot of noise
