Yellow is much better at clinging onto thermals
I'll have to look for the yellow.
What's worth repeating is the powders don't give air current/thermal indication beyond a short distance. You may not find milkweed in the nearest field, it shouldn't be too difficult to acquire some though, even if you have to plant some.
Chalk paint is a great idea. I just been using unscented talc.

I use a piece of sewing thread. I just tie a piece to a twig, easily identifying the wind direction. Usually stays hanging all hunting season. I have also used spider web. We have those big 'ole yellow banana spiders (zig-zags). They have huge webs, so if I happen up on one going to my stand, I pick up a stick and twirl some web on it. Then hang it from a twig. Trust me, the least amount of wind will make it move. And if all else fails, I will crush up a piece of tree bark or leaves and watch it's direction as it falls.
This ^ one piece will last you for years and years. And it's free.
This; works awesome
Huh? I never understood this. Can't you tell which way the wind is blowing by the friction on your skin? You need a cloud of dust to tell you? Like Gold Dust?

I look at my weather station. This tells me which way the prevailing wind is blowing but don't compensate for swirls, etc. Cat Tail's also have a real fine seed and usually are free falling when the season starts. Natural scent (if any). Grows in any low wet ground. Cheep. A couple short shots of doe pee in a can will attach to cover and stay long term and will follow any wind currents.
Milkweed. Much better and free.
