It's very discouraging to be out in the wind. We have, however, had success in it...at least during the rut. A few years ago, we actually decided to pack it up and head home because it was so windy. After driving for about an hour I thought "what the heck are we doing" and we turned around. Ended up shooting a 160s typical 6x6 that evening. This was a place that was in a hole and as much out of the wind as we could possibly find.Ive never done good hunting white tails in the wind.
