    High wind is just about the only weather condition that I absolutely hate to hunt in....:shrug:

    I'd rather hunt in the rain, below zero temps, heat, fog, what ever before high winds..... I hate high winds.:cool3:

    I actually like hunting in the fog.....:D

    Sposed to be 15+ until friday from what I can tell.

    I just don't have much in the way of spot and stalk places on my place. If I did, then maybe I would like it better. Out west, it was a good thing......:shrug:

    But, for sitting in a stand... Wind....:cool3:

    speaking of wind, I just got out of my truck in the parking lot. The wind caught my door and slammed it into a Cadillac. I did the good thing and put a note on their windshield....Hope it dosnt blow away. :whistle:

    No no no....the note should read: "Dear Mr / Mrs Cadillac owner, I carefully pulled into this parking spot and upon opening my door the wind blew your Cadillac right into my door, could you please leave your contact info so I can be reimbursed, kindly MrXXXX"

    I don't like hunting in high winds either. 10-15 mph is about as much of a wind as I can handle hunting in.

    A buddy of mine recently moved to Casper, WY and I was talking to him Sunday. He said it was a good thing he got his speed goats killed Saturday cause it was blowing 40-60mph Sunday and he'd have no idea how you could hunt in that.

    Yeah, no doubt. How many speed goats "off" would a feller need to hold in a 50mph crosswind?

    None, the speed of the goat would counteract the wind, aim dead center and you would be good.

    It's quite possible. He shot the first goat Saturday morning at a ranged 317yds and the second Saturday evening at around 400yds. He's a good shot but he didn't want anything to do with a 40mph wind.

    I'll be the first to admit that hunting in the wind is less enjoyable. but I do feel it gives the bowhunter some advantages. one is you can get to a stand location without being heard. The other is I think it blows your scent so much they can't pin point you as well. It also helps hide your movements. i hunted a whole week one season with high winds and saw plenty of deer.

    Used to work with a guy that had killed five pope and young bucks, all on 30+ mph wind days. he actually scheduled his days to hunt on the windiest days.
