Buckmaster’s Tip: Turn Bad Weather to Your Advantage!

December 22nd, 2007

It’s 3:30 a.m. and the alarm goes off. You’re tired, but visions of a big buck help you sit up and rub your eyes. Then you hear it — howling winds and maybe even the dreaded patter of rain on the roof.

Many of us at this point decide it’s not worth the trouble and lay back down to blissful slumber. But that could be a big mistake.

Deer are just like us when it comes to bad weather — they avoid it as much as possible. If you have hunted the same area for any length of time, you probably know of several sheltered depressions, benches or thickets — these can be deer hotspots in bad weather.

While going out and sitting on your favorite stand in pouring rain all day is miserable and probably unproductive, consider making stalks to your property’s natural weather shelters. You can make a short day of your hunt since you’ll probably be cold and wet, but your odds of seeing deer are good — especially when you compare them to the odds of taking your trophy buck from your bed!
