Question Barometric Pressure?????

Can someone please explain to me how pressure affects deer movement? When do you see the most deer movement? When the pressure is dropping/rising or is holding steady? Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

From what I use to rely on, having a moving barometer was better than one that is stagnant. The pressure lowers after stormy like conditions leave and opposite... increases when a storm front moves in.

My favorite use to be after a storm front left because they'd be on the rise, then it changed for me because I was then paying more attention to the barometer and weather channels to figure when a storm front was moving in, then I got out there immediately and started seeing game moving, ie, eating. It was just harder to predict a rising pressure without using technology, but about anyone could tell a lowering barometric pressure because the storm was over.
