I have a touch of both:
Having small children (7 and under) and a job that has a "busy season" from October through December (end of Fiscal Year rush, prep for the next FY) leaves me without the ability to spend as much time in the woods as I'd like... so my hunts are scheduled basically as soon as the PGC posts the dates.
My workaround for this has been several weekend "prep trips" throughout the year. Building/maintaining multiple blinds/stands, working food plots, lane clearing, working cameras, hinge-cuts to create funnels, creating cover, etc.
This makes for increased chances of success, even if conditions are sub-optimal when scheduled hunts come around. I know where the deer will (should) be for given conditions, and can adapt by selecting the best predetermined spot on the property for the given conditions.
I still get anxious the few weeks leading up to the hunts, but that's more excitement/anticipation than worry. Once I park my butt in the blind, a calm settles over me.
I've filled tags in rain, snow, wind, full moon, no moon, unseasonable heat, extreme cold... basically every condition, except for a true blizzard.... That was a long sit, and a longer ride out... Still, a good time.
