Default RE: Huting in rain

I shot a doe not even 5 min after it stopped drizzling yesterday, good thing I sat out the rain. I always carry a compass in the woods with me, and trailing a deer is one reason for it. I firmly believe that you should not push a deer too early after a shot...rain or shine. I know that some people look immediately when rainingin fear of losing a blood trail. Don't do it, let'em lay downand die. After the shot Ialways watch and listen and determine exactly which direction(compass) I last see/hear the deer in relation to my stand. Most deer don't go any further than 100 yds or so. I can usually b-line straight to the deer without blood trailing.
