Re: Opening day bad weather strategies?
Heavy rain is usually bad for stand hunting still hunting or a slow walk might be a good idea, light rain is OK to sit in usually they'll still move.
Light to medium fog is good because they move due them feeling safe/concealed. Been in heavy fog where they'd almost have to step on your toes to be able to see them.
Wind is a tough one, but if it's pretty cold they seem to stay put in heavy cover on lee side of wind. Walking ledges or edges of thick stuff might be a good plan.
Frontal passages have usually been good hunting before because they go to feed if its gonna get cold, and after epecially if it gets cold they'll be looking to chow down.
