Default Hunt the inital drop

Looking at the weather for this weekend in my neck of the woods and trying to decide whether to hunt the initial drop on Saturday morning (48 degrees) or hunt Sunday morning (44 degrees). My thought is to hunt the initial drop because it is the biggest change of the two. Thoughts?

Like above said, hunt both?
If not just pick one and not over think it. Deer will be moving both days.

I hunt whenever I have time, times, or temperature don't matter to me. Deer move all day, everyday.

I always try to be in the woods as the front is moving in or the first morning of a big temperature drop. It has always payed off for me. Good luck!

This is the ideal scenario IMO.......However since we have a pile of kids at all different ages, I go whenever I can.

Deer don’t stop moving due to weather, they just may not be in the same location you happen to be, which makes you think the deer are not moving.

If I could only hunt one of the days it would be the one with lighter winds. I've seen some great deer when it's windy, but a lot more when it's not.

Lunar tables are not good this weekend
But with pre-rut activity and cool weather,
I would hunt early sat a.m.
And maybe a “long shot” mid-day hunt back in the timber

Good luck.
