Good question, and the answer is yes, or maybe no. Here’s the anecdotal answer: Years ago, All-American trap shooter Mike Jordan and I stood up in a pit blind and shot at four snow geese departing straight away in strong crosswind about 40 yards out. I shot at one and stoned the bird flying next to it on the downwind side. Jordan gave his bird some windage, holding off its wingtip, and killed it cleanly. On that same day, I saw someone miss a sitting nutria because, he claimed, the wind moved his pattern. It would seem from those examples that wind can move patterns somewhere between a nutria-width to a full goose-width under the right circumstances.
