  10. @JerseyJaysTaxidermy would say...that's TWO mounts!!! Cha-ching!!! j/k
  11. So I come across this often with my spots... Scenario 1: Part of the day might look good for winds, but they shift 90 or even 180 degrees at some point of the day. Do you try to squeeze a couple hours in and bail when it shifts? Do you hope it changes like weather often does and bail if it doesn't? Do you just accept the guaranteed variable wind shifts that will blow your scent where you don't want it and maybe jack up your spot? Scenario 2: Other times you're on the extreme marginal side for winds, say you need an ideal N wind (NE and NW are still good but anything predominantly W or E or S are no bueno!). What do you do when it's on those marginal sides, say a WNW or W? Gamble and hope nothing hits your downwind scent stream (even though most big bucks and even mature does will intentionally do exactly that)? In general, my MO is to avoid hunting the spots entirely until I have a good wind for the entire sit. And if I only get half a day out of it, I'll bail and get out once the wind gets crappy. I'd rather just not mess up "comfortable" deer (especially resident does) or push any of them to go nocturnal. The downside is obviously you *could* get away with it on a given day where you get that ONE shot you've been looking for all season...and well if you aren't there, you aren't getting any shot. NJ is just tough with winds, seems like we're always in some wacky weather patterns where you aren't going to get much of a consistent wind for an entire day, or even half a day. A couple times this season I've gambled and tipped off deer I'd rather not have. Here I am looking at tomorrow and Sunday, and winds are all over. Debating on just waiting it out for better days or rolling the dice (of which my only hope is some new buck moved in today/tonight, which is possible but slim). What say you? How do you approach the wind and your stand setups?
