The best time to hunt is the falling barometer because animals feel the need to feed before the storm. The next best time is when the barometer starts to rise signifying the stormfront has passed, again triggering deer to get up and feed. A steady high barometer is the next followed lastly by a steady low meaning the middle of the storm. I am a big believer in hunting by barometer movement. You can bet when the barometer is about to fall i will be hunting!!


Precisely my observations as well

I would HIGHLY reccomend downloading one of these services to your phone and give it a try. Mine only costs 3.99/month.
How do u find the barometric pressure with that app? I have the same thing on my phone and i cant find it

They can predict up to 24 hours in advance with reliable accuracy, which is why they were in use into the 20th century, and any honest meteorologist will admit that they can't really do any better. Predicting weather in advance has a lot of science behind it, but it's still little more than an artform about half of the time, and as we all know...

My bad bro-i have 3-4 different weather apps on my phone. The one with the baro. plot is on Weather Scout by gndr mtn. Look for that one on yer download list-its not always available if you dont already have it-if you dont find it call your cell company and ask them.-I just looked on my cell and there is a mycast-fishing app that has it. 10 min free trial run to check it out. Its under the fishing tools menue. Same as weather scout!!

Anything you can use that will forecast barometric pressure swings will work.. i like the one on my phone because it breaks it down in 3hr segment(6 a.m., 9a.m., 12p.m.,3p.m., etc). It shows it in "graph" form and shows up to two days ahead. If i see tommorrow at 1pm that the barometer is goin to start dropping hard -i hunt!!! It is unbelievable how reliable the barometer is forecasting deer movement. Anyone who doesnt use this tool is missing out in abig way imo.
