What I mean by it is you learn where the deer are going to be coming from in a certain area. Then the morning or evening of the hunt you check the wind in that area. So if the wind is coming from the north I dont want to hunt a stand where the deer mainly come from south, so they wont catch my scent. Hunting this way has proven to be very effective with a few good stand placements!

Exactly as Brigmarine said if the wind blows your scent to the deer they will not come any where near your stand.

agreed for all that has been said so far. The wind is the major factor when it comes to your scent. Once a deer smells you , it can locate and avoid you

Not letting the deer catch your scent. If you are up wind from the deer, the wind will carry your scent down towards the deer and could/will spook it. If you play the wind right and stay downwind, the deer will not spook because he won't catch your scent.

Be fore you leave your cabin or truck use SCENT BLOCKER, at that point wind,rain ,snow, will not spock the deer.

Simply put, you want the wind in your face when you are watching for deer movements, or at least across your face, but never at your back.

The wind is very important because the deer can smell your scent if the wind is blowing towards him. An easy way to take care of this is to get a scent spray.
