I just got back in from sitting in the stand tonight. Weather showed 7 mph NNE wind all evening. That is the perfect wind for this stands location being on the edge of a fresh cut corn field. This farm I have not hunted in a full year, My hopes where high as I set out to harvest a doe for the freezer. Justin and I no more then got into the stand and the camera set up. It was if someone turned on a switch, here come the wind 20 mph+. We sat through it in hopes the wind would lay down this evening but it didn’t. A few does still came out but where very spooky with the high winds. I had a big mature doe walking the edge of the corn field straight to me. I could not get a shot because the shooting lanes I once had don’t exist anymore. ( moral of the story always keep your shooting lanes cleaned out). As she walked into the one shooting lane I had she spooked and took off running for the next county. But it was still a great night hunting! I have been seeing more buck sign as the rubs an scrapes keep appearing on the field edges.
