You're right, I should go out. There were 4 black bear in my yard this morning and I wanna see which direction they went after I lost sight of them.
I've often found in the rain is the best time to go out. Any tracks you find are prominent and fresh. Animals are either hunkered down or moving more freely. The sound of the rain covers your movement and it also keeps your scent down. I see more action in the rain.
