Deer hunting tip | Wind DirectionEvery year hunters make mistakes by not paying attention to wind direction. Learn how to hunt the wind and give yourself the best chance for hunting success while in the field.
Wind direction is critical in deer huntingAll the scouting and trail can picture is in the world won’t make up for poor planning when it comes to wind direction. For you bow hunters out there, it’s even more critical. Always be aware of which way the wind is blowing, not only in regards to stand location, but also in relation to the entry and exit routes to and from your stand or hunting location.
How to hunt the wind (keep it in your face)Stay downwind of the deer in all situations. For those of you not familiar with the terms “upwind” and “downwind,” an easy way to remember, is to be sure the wind is in your face when approaching and hunting your favorite trail or location. Paying careful attention to wind direction certainly won’t help you win the lottery, but when combined with effective scouting, planning and accuracy, it will increase your chances of seeing and taking more deer. We hope you have a great week and remember… “where the moments happen, we’ll meet you there.” We’ll see you next time.
