Thread: Do you go out if there is a bit of rain?

  1. #1

    Do you go out if there is a bit of rain?

    OK, may be a stupid question but I'm still a novice. Do you go stalking if there is a bit of misty rain? You know the sort, it can't quite be bothered to rain properly but it's raining none-the-less.

    Yes they are herbivores and need to eat no matter the weather but Roe deer like us do not like getting cold and wet and will avoid real driving rain and wind. But just look in areas were there is relative shelter these can produce good results.

    Been out in pretty horrendous weather with John Robbo from Yorkshire Deer Stalking, a one and a half hour drive influencing that but we often saw more than expected, I knew he wouldn't say we weren't bothering and to be honest I was always glad we did.
    If you've got decent waterproofs I think it's your duty to go out and test 'em !!
