What does it mean when a deer stares at you?
When a deer is staring at you, it is also assessing your general movements. If you make a rapid movement the deer is likely to flee unless it feels you are far enough away to pose no risk. If you are a hunter, when a deer stares at you, the game is up, and the deer knows you are there.
Why do deer make a screaming sound?

Will deer move in the rain?
Deer will be active all day during a steady rain, especially if the wet weather lasts for several days. If you decide to move, do it around noon, when deer are least active. You may bump a whitetail at any time, of course, but those standard pre-dusk deer will be out and moving much earlier in wet weather.
