Keep at it and try to keep a positive attitude. I always tell myself every day I go out that this is the day I will score on a monster buck.
The rain is not all bad if you have good rain gear as long as it is not a very heavy rain. I have had some very good days during a light rain.
Otherwise get out and do some in-season scouting since your scent will be washed away. Yesterday it seemed like the deer sign exploded from just a few days ago.

Rain for a couple days is awesome this time of year. Kmocks leaves down, quiets the leaves down that r already on ground, and bucks POUND scrapes right after rain.

I was told once by a very good friend, "every 5 minutes, it's a brand new hunt"!!!!! Rain is a great time to move stands, hang stands, scout, scout, scout!!!!!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.John 3:16 KJV
