I will. I'll be taking my 6 y/o daughter and we'll be going out in the Big Game Drury blind that I have. So at least we'll be staying dry.

Been trying to dodge the rain drops here but it has been a waste of time. Haven't seen anything. Doesn't help that it's also reaching the high 70's with high humidity. Sunday is supposed to be cooler and sunny. Plan to be out then, somewhere.

Planning on going out in my blind regardless of the rain. I dont honestly know if I will shoot anything due to blood trail loss and Murphys law but......

Any PA hunters here? Saturday in the Allegany National Forest the forecast is low 50's and rain and drizzle. The first week looks good clear skies temps in the mid 50's and low 60's and overnight lows in the upper 30's and low 40's. I'm looking forward to getting out with my new Grizzly and being retired now hunting everyday is something I've been waiting for.

Theres a fine line between Jersey Strong and Jersey Sane.

Anthny, you may want to reconsider a treestand if its in a pine tree. They have a bad habit of falling over and going BOOM after a long dry spell followed by a fast burst of rain.

Water gets sucked up into the branches and makes them top heavy and if you add a little wind. Timber!
