Yes, it really works, game move before weather systems move in and out. For instance I love to hunt the day before a cold front moves in because the deer are out feeding before it gets cold. Then you can hunt the morning after the front moves out. If it's going to rain later in the day I hunt all morning until it starts to rain, if it's a soft rain I will hunt all day in it. Hunting the weather, moon phases and barometric pressure is very useful for getting a deer.
when the barometer bottoms out they already ate and are bedded down. most of the time!
ya when there is a storm on the way they will be moving alot more than normal and right after the storm they might be moving a bit more i have taken my muzzel loader deer the last two seasons on the eve of a big winter snow storm
A barometric pressure in the low to mid 29's is favorable for deer hunting
Where I hunt, the best is after the front on a rising barometer and after the wind moderates.
I prefer falling or low pressure. Stable os OK.
Yes, falling pressure is best. I'm guessing animals move prior to bad weather. It might be the last time they eat for awhile.
