Extended forecast is showing possible temps in the 60's.

We are going to deal with a warm spell in Missouri next week. This is the week we hunted last deer but it was warm. The cold week was after we left. I have a co-worker south of where we hunt. He has had some real cold temps and said they are chasing.
Looks like comfortable temps for a couple all day sits.
Big story is wind forecast. 3 out of next 4 days here are supposed to be out of north followed by over a week straight of southerly winds. If a hunter has a preferred north wind stand he better use it soon or else it might be the week before firearm season before there’s another opportunity.
It’s November. Not ideal weather but it is Rut no matter what the temps are.
[got a non-stop train, we got to let it roll on!]
Another out of the ordinary thing with the current long range forecast for our area is that for the next 10 days there's not a single day with a rain probability forecast of above 20%. I recognize that could change but I love the fact that there may not be any washouts during the prime time to come.
Hope the mods can sticky this thread. Wouldn't want anyone to waste their time hunting next week.
I have the whole week off....maybe I'll learn how to crochet?
So, does the lack of rain impact the rut too?
I am learning so much from this site.
Rain has a big impact on whether or not a blood trail is easily followable. Deer do what they're going to do but dry conditions are a major benefit to hunters.
Sat yesterday A.M. for turkey to no avail with absolutely no sign of the rut,many families still intact and hangin together,no bands of last springs fawns,nothin chasin anything,save a demolished decoy by a Lab Pup,had seen as early as 2 weeks ago some scrapes getting started,but iam out tonight with the rain and a new crossbow! GL ya All!!!
EFFIN WIND. I have multiple stands set for any wind direction but the non stop annoyingness of a windy day gets to a guy...
My mini vacation starts tomorrow at noon and I'll have 4.5 days to it done. I'll still hunt but I'll bitch out it. Lol
One saving grace we have is hunting near the swamp. It's effected less by windy conditions being low ground but you can't hunt it in a north wind.
It never changes, temporally. Weather, e.g. wind, temp, precip affect intensity (read: movement)
