I have been anticipating a hunt with my bow for some time now, and finally tonight I got to go. It's been around 32 degrees all day with a slight 5-10 mph wind that makes it feel below freezing.
Got all ready and headed out. As I left the house I noticed the wind was out of the North/Northwest. As I sat in my stand expecting the wind to be at my face (NORTH FACING STAND), I felt the wind hitting my back.
NOW... before any jokes are made about my direction-sense,, YES I do know what is NORTH and SOUTH. The dad-gum wind had changed directions and came from the South/Southwest. Talk about mad. Plus I only had about 2 hours to hunt so I didn't have time to get down and relocate. By the time I got to a new stand it'd be too late and I'd probably spook everything in site.
Needless to say, I didn't see anything at all,, just a bunch of blue-birds. For what it's worth, I did see two does... AS I WAS LEAVING THE FIELD.
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
