Is it just me?

Postby stash59 » Thu Sep 14, 2017 3:17 pm

Those with openers this weekend. Am I the only one constantly checking the weather. To see if they've updated a wind direction change. Different from what they've been predicting. Over the last few days. :doh: :angry-tappingfoot: :violence-bowandarrow: :violence-bowandarrow: :violence-bowandarrow:

Long term forecasts suck. I save myself some headaches just wait to check it the day before and then again for planning on where to hunt that day just before I head out.

Scoutlook is usually pretty accurate especially with the timing of the wind switches. I like the hour by hour detail.

Yep and I'm pumped for the wind. Should be the perfect just off wind for the spot I want to hunt

Why you guys looking at the wind? I heard a very successful Michigan bow hunter recently say it doesn't matter. :lol:

Good luck everyone this weekend! Wish I was out there too.
