Buckmaster’s Tip of the Week: Get out of the Wind

October 31st, 2006

Deer hunting can be miserable business in inclement weather, but most hunters have to hunt when they have time and can’t be choosy. One thing to keep in mind in cold, windy or even rainy/snowy weather is that deer don’t enjoy it any more than you do.

In windy, cold weather, hunt sheltered hollows, the back side of ridges away from wind, and hemlock, pine and spruce stands. You’ll probably see more deer; and even if you don’t, at least you’ll be more comfortable.

Speaking of comfort, look for wind-blocking clothing to extend your time on stand. Most waterproof clothing is also windproof, but there are less expensive wind-blocking garments available as well.
