Default Highs and Lows of barometric pressure

This maybe an old question, but how do you hunt the changes of pressure? Do you like to hunt most when a front is coming in and the pressure is falling or when high pressure is returning. I hunt whenever I can, but sometimes it' s nice to anticipate more deer movement.

I should take notes on this one

I have never looked, known or cared what the pressure was

I like clouds though - clouds are good

Mark and Terry Drurry , who are also from MO, are really into hunting the pressure changes and also hunting daylight hours when the moon is visable. My favorites are right before a cold front comes through and right after.

All the research I' ve seen, read, or heard note that there is more deer movement, and you can see this in cows and livestock to move and feed before a front when the barometer drops only....they say there is not difference in their daily movement when the barometer rises.

Mark Drury doesn' t tell the whole story....A cold front is great...yes when the barometric pressure drops.....other than that, the cooler weather is simply a relief for the animals.
