Too windy?

3 posts in this topic

So I aquired this week off work (laid off) and what crappy weather. What do you all think is too windy? Is it worth sitting in 35 mph gusts or should I just watch the outdoor channel from the couch? Anybody got any high wind tips? Also, how do you think wind will effect my shot?

Well first of all you aren't gonna shoot one on the couch!!! The wind is actaully supposed to die down a bit towards evening.

Unless you've got a TV & couch in your deer stand, go out & hunt. If you're not going to do that, go back to work & save your vacation man.

Find a protected spot where there's food or a funnel, they'll be there. The deer will still move, but they'll actually be in more predictable places. I hunted in a poor spot this morning (for just an hour), I wanted to try it once before gun season just in case. I didn't see anything, but on my way to work saw a big deer down wind of a thick stand of pine trees about 8:00.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
