    one of my biggest birds was killed in the rain, heavy downpour when I got there, really should have stayed in bed, once the thundering lightening stopped I got out of the truck, still light rain going on and it had been daylight for about 30 minutes. Bird was gobbling his head off, ran a good 800 yards to my usual setup, he died 5 minutes within me sitting down. We were both soaking wet.

    What these gentlemen said.........

    I've killed some birds right after rainstorms when the sun is peeking out, seems to get em going.

    Now wind, well, I've had a tough time hunting in the wind.

    Hunting in the rain is one of my favorite times to hunt. It concentrates the majority of the birds into fewer places. Find the closet field to the roost site or a field they already frequent and that's the best places to start. Keep in mind bad weather may keep them in a the tree a little longer than normal.
