Note the wind patterns! About every 5 days or more, the wind starts from zero degrees (North) and slowly drifts towards the East, then South, then West and again North. THIS is what the deer use as their safety net! The wind travels in a clockwise motion throughout the week which will cause the bigger bucks to adjust their travel routes in order to keep their nose in the wind as much as possible.

Now look at the aerial map and notice the areas that have water, bedding, food and cover (within 200 yards). Stand placement should be in several areas in which there will be no wind blowing from your stand to that “magic area” we talked about in my previous article. Any new ideas regarding stand placement now?
