This is so true. We put a tree stand down by a creek. We saw hundreds of deer tracks and were really excited about hunting it. I never got a chance. The wind was doing crazy things down there and it was pretty close to a bedding area. I probably could have hunted it but I didn't want to blow it for me and my hunting partner. We had other stands on up the trail and didn't want to chase the deer away. I still think it could be a good spot though.Jay and Lee summed it up quite well. Just watch your wind direction. The wind does funny things in low lying areas sometimes.
