Default Who's hunting tomorrow morning?

With the chances of rain high will anyone take a chance and get out and hunt possible shoot something with rain in the forecast? Also side note do y'all see new bucks every year leading up to and into the rut seeing nothing but small bucks this year and hoping as we get to the rut my chances of seeing a legal buck rise.

Well didn't make it out due to rain and not willing to take a chance at a deer and that sure was a good choice just went and threw my binos up to check if there were any visitors, well just my luck two shooters trailing a group of doe rite by my feeder. Haven't ever seen these bucks hopefully things will work out in the coming days and these bucks become regular

Yep that's what I'm hoping, I just was worried about possibly losing a blood trail due to all the rain, also not sure if a dog can trail in rain?

I'm working Saturday then off for several days. I'm undecided as I have little to ZERO activity and have some stuff to do at home. May go for a standby next week though.

Hoping the food plot comes up well and brings a few deer in soon.
