I used to be like you but then I started to plan to put them up in June which works out better. This late in the game, if it's not raining to hard it does keep your scent down.

Default Yep

Next time start grooming the area in summer, trim tree, create your shooting lanes in the tree and on the ground. Less scent when you return w/ your bow too.

Rain is just wet.
Washes away your scent.
Not the worst day to put up a stand. Put on a large Glad Bag and put the stand up.

Put my stand up a few weeks ago in the pouring rain. I got soaked, but I know that ALL of my scent was washed away. Season opens the 1st, can't wait
