Windy days are just one of the reasons why I quit hunting from trees, and started hunting on the ground, because I'm more mobile, and can move to WHERE THE DEER ARE, under variable conditions.
I will admit that hunting from treestands on windy days is for a good measure a waste of time.
I will also admit that hunting on the ground the way I do IS harder to do also, but it IS very rewarding, even if you don't get a shot.
The place I hunt had NO other hunters out yesterday, because of the wind. I was the only hunter there, and I went to where I'd go if I was a deer and wanted out of the wind. Just the fact that I was able to find them, even though I had no shots (one of them I SHOULD have had a shot on, had I watched my backtrail like I should have been!), made the day a complete success for me.
I like to HUNT them as much as, and maybe more than at times, kill them.
