Well I'm here in Iowa and getting a record rain storm here...flash flood warnings and didnt go out this morning because of lightning and thunder showers...went out at 2pm and sat till 7pm got pretty wet for the afternoon hunt but saw a doe and a couple of fawns but this spot has plenty of rubs... I'm a out 1.5 miles in on this set...local on the road told me there is a big non-typical running the ridgeline I'm hunting...thatvwas nice to here...people here in Iowa are so friendly.

Shot my biggest buck in the rain last year. The sad part is we never found it. I've had good luck in the rain, it seems like.

I agree...some yrs ago in Michigan I shot a 166 in the rain...it was a long tedious tracking job, but i recovered him. Tracking should be as fun as the harvest...its the small hunt after the shot...

Sat this morning on a set 2miles in...it rained on my walk in, but quit at day break...didnt see anything. Sat from 7am to 12...the hard rain s have made the hunting tuff. Actually fell in the river today, got thru this morning in the dark with no problems but the strong current pushed me over on my way back today..the love of deer hunting its all good...I'm hunting in Iowa no need for complaining

Send some of the rain and cool weather south! I've had all I can stands, and can't stands no more! Hot and dry down here in middle Georgia!

Passed this boy up toniteView attachment 17637
Actually had a jumbo at 10 yards this morning but couldnt get a shot off...Iowa is a special place...
Since the weather broke I did a all day sit. I was extremely optimistic but I only saw one spike horn at 5;48. First time with my kestrel on a all day sit and I never got uncomfortable. This spot has great potential for shooting a mature buck 5 to 6yrs old. Havent seen another hunter yet...thatscwhat happens when you cross a river with wader then ditch them in the weeds to change into my lacrosse....the weather has diffantly changed some of the patterns...I put out two cameras yesterday...and hoping to see whats back in here...keep you guys posted.Screenshot_20191004-215051_Gallery.jpg

First day of cooler temps. High was 75. Felt good, got to hunt my fav WMA. Set up on several producing white oaks, 4 does came in down wind and slipped back to wence they came. it's great to get out after them!
