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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
