What Type of Conditions Make the Best Hunting Days

When planning a hunting trip, many people often try to choose nice days that are cool and comfortable for them. However, when hunting, sometimes those nice days for you may mean that you come home empty handed. This has made many hunters question whether there is a direct link between animals and certain weather conditions. The answer is a very timid, “Yes.” There is some proof that animals respond to weather situations and there is some proof that animals, especially deer, change their habits based on the weather. When asking, “What type of conditions make the best hunting days?”, the answer could be, “the days when you would rather not venture out.”

It is impossible and very expensive for scientists to consider the idea of studying when animals are most on the move. However, a lot of hunters do suggest that fronts and rains are a good time to see deer more active. They do seem to sense that the weather is about to change and they will venture out for food or other things before it hits. Basically, if you have a temperature that is just slightly cool and you have a front that is going to come in and drop temperatures, you stand a better chance of catching a deer at that time. You will also have more of a chance to see them after the front has passed and things begin to level off again. The reason, most deer and other wildlife, may hunker down when rapid temperature changes occur.

Winds can also impact whether a deer is easy to hunt or not. If you have a light breeze, you can still venture out into the wilderness and possibly catch sight of a big buck. However, if the wind is blowing hard, you may want to stay at home. Deer and other animals hear the wind and become more skittish. This makes them less likely to stay in one area for very long.

Most deer and other animals, even a farm cow who is protected, will avoid heavy rains. They may begin to hide hours before a big storm rolls in. The good news is, if you can catch them when they are still preparing for the change in weather, you have a good chance of seeing them. They will also venture out after rains, regardless of whether it was a light rain shower or a heavy downpour.
