Do you really worry about wind direction when you choose a stand location? I choose all my stand locations due to sign and/or a location that will funnel deer movement (to my mind). As often as I do this (every year!!) I also end up sitting in one, figuring that the deer are going to come in from the 4 O'Clock position when, in fact, the deer come in from the 10 O'Clock heading. In other words, if I had forsaken this stand due to "bad winds" I'd have not seen Mr Big saunter in from the opposite direction.
