Aw heck! Another wet Saturday is approaching S-E PA. Is it really worth going out in it, or should I just wait for rifle season?

    Thanks for the motivation and suggestions. I did take her out this morning, and except for two light showers the sky was not a problem. It was humid, so we were a little overwarm in our wet gear.
    The junior hunt is antlerless only. We saw three along the road, and we bumped two more as we hiked in to our spot. She didn't have a shot at them, but I got a couple quality hours with my daughter.

    O"BROTHER 2Poppa is dead on right!

    Darn if you do and darn if you don't!

    I have a two popups and my Grandson as long I can keep him warm and dry, were ok.

    Last year he said nothing moves in the rain and I told him he is wrong. So I swooped him over to the Buffalo National River in Arkansas and counted over 50 Elk. He would not believe there was Elk in Arkansas! Should have seen that Boys face, WOW!

    You may want to reconsider taking your daughter out in the rain. If it isn't enjoyable and fun,she may turn against hunting and then, you will have to drag her,even on a beautiful day ...

    Yes, and do consider a ground blind. Makes it much more comfy for the kids ... and you.

    I bought a $50 ground blind for hunting in the rain. It's a little tight for a bow but would be great for rifle hunting.

    If you have to man up... it might not be a great time to take your daughter out. the last thing you want is for her to be miserable!!! but if shes a tough lil lady and enjoys hunting alot already then go for it. Just make shure that she has a great time... after all its not you hunting its her.

    One of the best deer I ever took was in the rain.
    But I'd let the "lady" decide !

    When time allows and the season is open don't waste the days. We all only have just so many days to hunt in our life.
    Your daughter let her make her choice. You can kill a kids desire to hunt if pushed to hard to early and they aren't having fun.

    A pop-up ground blind can make a rainy day bearable. At least you'll be out of the rain.
