Well, I hunted the wind on Saturday and it turned out to be a beautiful morning for a little while.
I heard squirrel chatter and looking in that direction I watched two fawns chasing each other from one side of a fence row to the other.
Needless to say it was the only action I was to see. The wind really started picking up, but I toughed it out for another hour.and called it a morning. I didn't see a tail on the evening hunt.
but I am heading out anyway. It wouldn't be the first time I hunted in the wind. As a matter of fact some of my better hunts have been on windy days. Don't quite know why. I think it might have something to do with the security the wind takes away from he deer's nose.

It is in a big brushy drainage just inside the tractor road along the cut corn. I faced the stand opposite the field using the tree
Already a month into and all I can say is I love this stuff. I got my EAB doe in the first week. Seems like forever ago...In pursuit of at least 3 shooter bucks I have seen on the hoof and another that I got on the trail cam early. So far they are winning the game. I can't seem to put myself in the right spot. The classic move to where I see them and they they show up at where I 've been
