That was a lesson I have never forgotten and now I avoid hunting in the rain. But it still sounds like guys hunt in the rain. So I am just curious how they find there deer?
Bow Hunting in the rain?
I have heard of using dogs and I agree this may work, do you have a web link you could post or phone numbers so guys could locate these dogs when we need them, as I don't know where I would find one when I needed it.
We always hear stories about guys hunting in the rain and not finding them which is too bad. I believe there was one posted on this Forum again this year.
The question isn't if the animals will move, it's a question of if we will find them. (Two seperate things)
If it is a 5 yards or 25 yard shot I don't see how guys think that will make a difference as the deer could have the same amount of blood and travel the same distance either way, but some seem to think it would? One may travel 20 yds and then the next time it could go 150yd, does anybody really know that before you take a shot?
We as Sportsman in my opinion should not be killing animals only to have them rot in the woods. We should not be teaching others this either. I personally do not have direct access to a dog, so I will stick to my ethics and not hunt in the rain.
