How far are you from 2B? I've got lots of spots here.

I've been checking the weather daily and our season doesn't open for a few weeks yet. :shhh:

The wind is almost always different at my stand than what is predicted, so I don't worry too much with it. Hunting the mountains you just have to be very mobile for different wind directions and have multiple spots. Yesterday was a forecast south wind and south at my house. Checked on a hunting spot and was an east wind swirling back to the north...

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


Still need to pay attention to the wind if you're hunting a primary scrape location... C'mon Joe! 8-)

With the temps and chance of rain, I think I'm going to save myself the trip and earn some points around home... That way if the weather gets better in a few weekends I can pack up and go without hearing "but you just went!". Trying to play the odds......

Yup, not just you. It's only 8:20AM and I have checked twice already...

Not sure why I'm checking when there is a 95% chance I can't even hunt this weekend in WI! :lol: Thankfully that WNW wind (Sunday) is only perfect for one of the early season beds I hunt...

If the weather stays the same here then it's looking good for the spot I plan to hunt tomorrow night, entry from the E/SE and the winds should be W/SW by primetime.

I don't look until the day before or the day of a hunt, better yet I go outside and see what is happening in the yard, W can sometimes mean gusts of SW or NW even if the weather man doesn't agree and I don't like to be surprised.

That's very nice of you. I'm a solid 4 hours or more Northeast of 2B

Not just you. I can always tell its deer season because when my wife asks if I know what the temperature is going to be outside I can tell her for the next 5 days along with if any fronts are coming in. :lol:
