I know this has probably been addressed on here before but I would like to know your thoughts-
I was sitting in my blind last night with a south wind and I had a hard time finding a place where I could set up effectivly south of the deer trail (same day set up DB). I found a spot and got her all brushed in and went to hunting. After 3 hours and didnt see anything it got too dark to hunt. I started to pack it up and as soon as I unzipped the blind a deer just to my right and down wind crashes through the swamp. This deer could not have been more than 10 or 15 yards away down wind!!
Anyway it got me to thinking. if I was a deer and my nose was my greatest tool of survival I would try and travel into the wind and detect anything in front of me before I walked into it. This may explain why I always have deer come in behind me. I try and sit with the wind in my face.
Do you find that deer tend to walk into the wind and if so would it be better to sit with the wind crossing you?
When sitting facing the wind I find deer come in behind me allot. Am I playing the wind wrong?
