    Agreed. I think this should be applied to many other skills as well, especially fire lighting.

    Everyone whose lived a while and who has paid attention to the Universe knows that, "If things can go wrong, they will."

    Too, there's the benefits. After / during a rain, the leaves are wet and thus do not crunch. That which you are hunting cannot hear you so well. Weather can conceal -- during the battle of Austerlitz, Napoleon ordered his general St. Hilaire to attack the Pratzen Heights. St. Hilaire's men came up out of a fog and on their second assault they routed the Russians & Austrian combined forces. The defenders of the heights couldn't believe the sight of the French enemy coming up out of that soup. OK, so the French took nasty losses, however it could have been / would have been suicide without the fog.

    If the weather is really, really bad, then your enemy's higher altitude flares can't light you up so well.

    Free float barrels over wooden stocks or use man-made material stocks when the weapon is going to stay soaking wet. Wood expands and if it is right up against the barrel, this can make your sight-in worthless.

    Side note: Store flares. Obviously, they're a must-have for emergency purposes, especially when boating. However, nowadays battles are often fought at night and this with night-vision equipment. Deny your enemy the concealment of night by sending up flares above them. Never back-light yourself. Always back-light the enemy. When the SHTF, looters will attempt to own the night. Don't let them.

    Nasty weather shoot.
    Good idea.
    I once went deer hunting at -10 F.
    Never again.
    Just a tad too cold to suit me.

    I love to hunt and eat about everything I bag.
    Same with fishing.
