Hunting the Wind


Recommended Posts

With all the scent eliminating clothing, sprays and gadgets out there. Would you hunt the wrong wind if had the chance to hunt your target buck.

When i was younger i would but now i don't. I start work early so i get out early enough to hunt almost ecery day.  I have to wait for the right wind for me to go. I know you can't get them unless you go but hunting older bucks I think its a must to wait for good wind. I still keep my hunting stuff scent free as possible cause you never can tell where they will come from.

I had a yearling spike come down off a ridge on the wrong side of my tree.  When he was 10 yards from my tree he smelled me and darted back up the hill 20 yards.  He waited a minute or 2 and then came right back down the same way.  He caught my scent again and ran 20 yards back up the hill again.  He repeated this 4 or 5 times until he finally circled 10 yards upwind of my tree so he could walk past without smelling me.  :rofl:
