the problem is. Here the 2nd day is a wash becouse it was pooring down rain this morning so my uncle decided we were not going out. they are calling for more rain for friday. maybe we will get lucky and it will turn colder and turn to snow.
Huh? Rain and snow shouldn't slow you down or hold you back.
Rain dampens the leaves and heightens your stealth, while the deer tends to cuddle up, staying put under pines or heavy brush. Meanwhile you're taking your time poking along looking for sign.
Snow! I love to hunt in fresh snow! Tracks galore! scrapes might be covered, but nothing like seeing that 6 pointer actually take a few breaths after being put out and chased by some other hunter that, if you're sitting in the right spot, puts that buck coming right across your line of sight.
Remember: As he's coming into your sights -- Breath, relax, aim, slack, squeeze.
Take a breath and let it half out. Relax. Take aim. Draw down slow...never jerky or quickly. Take up the slack in your trigger. Every gun is different. Then, slowly squeeze that trigger. "course, you guys know all this. lol
Good luck this season, sllamky! You too, Bill!
