On Monday, November 12, I spent the last hours of the first half of the split Pennsylvania deer archery season in a ground stand, using natural cover. It was windy, but not as windy as it had been at midday. Rain started falling before the end of legal shooting hours. With the rain and cloud cover, it was not possible to see well enough to hunt before hunting time ended, regardless, I stretched every bit as much of the time as I could. All it got me was wet, because by the time I walked out of the woods it was pouring.
