  3. Scent control or Wind control...?

    General Archery Discussion
    All season long I bow hunt and I want to pick everyone's brain to see what you all do, especially for early season.

  5. Field Target Shooting in 20-25mph winds with gusts - how do you do it?

    Competition Target Archery
    I've heard stories of arrows being blown off rests, being blown on to different bales and have experienced all this during 900 rounds and one 600 classic round. I've weighted my front stab up, changed to shorter stabs, changed blades from Freakshow to standard, but the biggest issue is trying...

  14. does windblocking clothing prevent scent dispersion?

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    do garments that block the wind cut down on the dispersion of human scent vs. those garments that dont block the wind? it seems to me they should because the wind isnt whistling through the garment.

  17. Strategy for shooting in the wind.

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    Any hints? I got messed up on Sunday. We had gusts that lasted from 10 to 30 seconds and would then subside to a gentle breeze and then we'd get nailed with a blast that would knock over tripods and bows on stands. One of the fellows with more experience than I said it's best to shoot...
