Default Hunting in Rain.

It has been raining all night and all day. Is it worth my time to go sit in a tree stand this evening.

I would definately say yes. I'd rather hunt in the rain, snow, sleet, almost any time otherthan in a blowing wind. Good luck to you.

I would rather hunt on rainy days myself.Go to walmart and buy one of the tree unbrellas it's one of the best things you can carry in your pack. They cost @ $10.00 and only weight a pound.

With a firearm, absolutely, but not with a bow.

IMHO a gloomy drizzle is ideal. Besides, its the only thing I enjoy doing outside on days like that...I hate working in it.

I love hunting in the rain. Not a hard one but a drizzle or light rain is ideal. I have seen lots of nice bucksmoving at this time.
