I've been watching the forecast for my hunt area every day for several days now, and each day the forecast gets wetter. The first two days of my tip are now 100% chance of rain. Rain chance the rest of the trip drops down to 10 but it's going to be wet no matter what. I'm certainly not a top moose hunter, but deer and game back home tend to hole up and not move around during rainy periods. Do moose generally behave similarly?
I'm thinking of postponing my trip for those first two days of heaviest rain. It's a 10 day trip (or I'm going prepared to be gone for 10 days), and I'm thinking I'd rather not start off soaked. Especially if the rain is going to cause the moose to hide out anyway. Postponement doesn't affect my schedule in any way really, other than not being out their on opening day.
My other concern is what is that going to do the river's water level and currents? I expect higher water and faster currents, but not knowig the area, I don't know to what extent. Oh, and I'm going completely solo on this trip.
Just how important is it to be out there on the first day? (Because, down south, if you don't get your deer on the first day, you probably aren't getting one.)
