    Wind is really swirling and gusting to like 25mph. I'm heading to a different spot out of the weather. Hopefully the deer will be thinking the same.

    Had a small buck chase a spike through not long ago then just a few minutes ago a doe came by on the same trail, hoping passing her pays off with a big buck

    try the super thin turkey-style gloves. Primos and a bunch of others make them. They're cheap, like 6/pair. Will air dry just from wearing them.

    I wouldnt hunt the top of the ridge, but 2/3 of the way up (military crest) with the wind in my face, and on the side the sun hits. That way a cruising buck gets the wind coming over the top of the hill, and can catch the rising thermals. Sit facing the hill obviously.

    I'd find thick cover with security cover attached and hunt down wind. Just me. I'm simple and stupid.
