I'd lay back. Might see something but it's been my experience deer will hold tight in a high wind.
I'm VERY serious about thinking of taking Friday off...the weather almost looks too good to pass up.

I'll be off Friday. Cold front is hitting and I will not be missing it.
A halloween buck from three years ago, it was 70 degrees and the middle of the afternoon. He was on a mission.
I'm looking forward to hunting Friday. Will be my 4th sit of the season and will get another rut stand up.
Downside is winds will be whipping up to 40+ on the gusts. Won't deter me, but may prove uneventful for the whitetails.
Saturday is looking awesome though, low in the mid/upper 20's and winds in the single digits. Hopefully a lot of corn has come out in the past two weeks.
if it's going to be that windy I would definitely wait for next week, but if you decide to go good luck hope you get something.
I'm mainly going so I can do a few things.
Want to try making a licking branch with DHscent's product.
Want to pull a blackout camera and place on it, so need to swap cameras.
Pull both camera cards
Hang a stand over said branch/cam site and let it sit until my vacation next weekend.
If deer are going to be hunkered down I can't think of a better time to get it done. If I can get it done quick enough I'll climb another stand another and sit the rest of the day.
any day you can hunt.... hunt! if you taking a day off work, then maybe save it. but if you're off... I say be in the tree. never gonna kill it on your couch!
Sitting in the stand last night confirmed that Halloween will likely be blowing up... I had more deer in the field than I have seen all year and there was major chasing going on 10 minutes after sunset. If I didnt have 3 does at 15 yards I would have hit the grunt.
Shaping up to be an epic day of hunting.
41 for a high with a 5-10mph wind.
I checked the wind and yeah it is supposed to be strong until the last hour of daylight, then it slows down just in time to kill a big buck.
