If the rut is going good, you will see them.
If not do you have any thick stands of pine.
When its nasty cold, and raining, they like to get under thick pine trees that have branches close to the ground, it's dry and toasty, in there.

Good Luck.

Deer aren't people. Their daily activities have to go on regardless of weather. They can't sit inside and wait it out.
The rain may mean they move less and stick to thicker cover so that's where you need to be. The temperature means nothing.
It was -17 here yesterday morning and life in the deer world was business as usual.

Some of my best fall turkey hunting has been in down pours. Deer have to eat they will move look for some thick cover so they can keep out of the rain as much as possible.

You can if you have a couch in your hunting blind. Had a uncle in Louisiana that had a lazy boy in his blind.

Unless you are in one of those fancy shooting houses they use down in TX. Then you can probably kill one from the jacuzzi while watching the big game on ESPN.
