My son killed his first turkey 2 years ago about 10 minutes after the rain stopped that morning.

It cannot rain hard enough to stop me from Turkey hunting.
Went to the truck with a bird several times and was so wet I had to change clothes before getting in.
Went several after a rain to change and get back after them too.

You can have some great public land hunts in the rain. Nothing will empty the turkey woods faster than less than optimal conditions, much less rain or wind. I have't actually killed one in the rain, but I have sat out in it many times and came very close. If it is going to rain hard, I have carried a small, treestand umbrella in my vest and posted up under a tree with a thick canopy.

I've done it. Can be good hunting. Wouldn't go as far as saying I enjoy it but I do like killing turkeys. So if it's raining and it's turkey season I'm probably gonna get wet.
