Hunting Opportunities

Strong wind shift events can create a predictable hunting opportunity for a mature buck. This will usually be associated with the passage of a strong cold front, which changes the wind from a southernly to a north or northwest direction.

Because deer prefer to bed out of the wind, they will move from their pre-front bed to a new, quieter location. The stronger the wind, the better. This may be the best opportunity to kill a nearly nocturnal buck under natural conditions including during the rut. Doing this successfully requires knowing both bedding locations. Providing these locations makes predicting this movement possible.
