The rut is more adversely affected by high temps and full moons. As soon as the temp drops they seem to turn on. If you have many cloudy days in late october with cold temps the rut can be a bit early as the decreasing amount of daylight contributes to the beggining stages of the rut. Normally you can determine the full rut period and be within three days each and every year.
About the wind thing, this year I watched deer travel with the wind several times on different days. They were traveling their feeding routes regardless of the wind direction. Mind you these were does and small bucks and not mature bucks. Just when you think they will react as they should presto they show you why its called hunting and not getting.
wmi, I don't disagree with your wind statement just sometimes they surprise us.
