Rain effects on Swamp/Marsh hunting

Unread postby RaisedByWolves » Mon Jul 26, 2010 3:07 pm

wondering if all this rain is worrying anyone who hunts the swamps/marshes...i hope many of my marsh beds aren't going to be submerged for the next few months. Anyone have any pro's or con's to all this rain? how will you adapt?

One BST 'pro' might be more water equals less land, less land means more condensed areas. When a lake drys up, the fish congregate to the remaining water, much the same, while deer are by no means afraid of water and swimming, they will head towards higher ground where it's dry.

I think the key here is when the water levels are up come hunting season, look for these higher and dryer areas. Your next step would be picking the "right" higher and dryer areas for the right reasons.
