Postby otisscout » Wed Oct 09, 2013 6:20 pm

Stormy weather has been forcasted for the end of the work week(like thur-fri) and another strom sat night into sunday. Any thoughts on the best times to hunt? During the storm, in between or before they arive or after? I hear so many different answers, so what do y'all like to hunt??? :help:

All of them. I have generally had more luck the morning after the first day of storms. Last year, the morning after the first snow storm was killer.

In my experience, lots of birds move ahead of storm fronts, so I've had most of my best hunting success on days just prior to crappy weather. Case in point: I saw the weather forecast was for stormy weather this afternoon and tomorrow. I knew yesterday afternoon or this morning would be good odds for new birds moving into the area. My buddy and I shot 14 birds in 1 hour 13 minutes today. I love the days just before the storms hit.

I like to be out there as the storm fronts are hitting. Had a good shoot last night right after that first front passed.

I hate the rain, but love the wind.

I didn't see many birds today either, it kind of surprised me.
Public spots can be:
-Good
-Easy to get too/ find
-Not crowded
