Default worth going out or not

so the heat just flared up here in delaware and its about 90 degrees. I want to go hunting today, but I have a feeling I will just be hot, miserable and ate up by skeeters. I think the deer will probably be moving late. confirm if I should go out or save myself th sweat. I think I just need a little push to get me out there.

Take a thermacell and a bottle of water. While you can pattern them, they are still unpredictable.

I think the main problem with hunting in the heat is that the deer aren't going to be moving that much (at least out in the open). If you're hunting fields, then I doubt you would see anything until it's dark, and you won't be able to shoot. If you're deep in the woods and--like chris149 said--there is a water source nearby, then you should be good to go out. Then again, no matter where you are hunting, your best chances would be in the early morning or late afternoon, when the weather is beginning to cool. Good luck!
