Interested in what the hunting tactics are for days when there are high winds since Saturday's forecast is calling for wind speeds of 20-30 mph. Is it best to hunt the low areas? Will the deer even move?

I have not had a lot of success during high winds. Light rain is a completely different story.

They're cautious about moving in high winds and will usually be pretty skittish. But this time of year the bucks will still move, and if you aren't in the field you can't kill one. Sunday morning after the winds lay should also be a great hunt.

If there are any hills, hunt the sides of the hills protected from the wind and any low thick places. Deer are extra jumpy when the wind blows, but they can be predictable also.

Yea, Sunday definitely looks like prime conditions. Looks like I'll be getting home late Sunday night.

I watched a little spike two weeks ago when it was very, very windy in East Texas. He was jumpy, but he still wanted to eat acorns and visit his scrapes (that were being hit by several bucks). He still came out though. While I do not anticipate a whole lot of movement on Saturday, they will still be out chasing so I would rather be out as well. Sunday however looks to be promising. I took off all of next week to hunt so I will be out every day Saturday through Wednesday morning and then again on Friday through Sunday. Bound to see something (I hope!)

In our area they are used to the wind blowing. It doesn't seem to really bother them. I've seen as many big bucks out then as any other time.

If the deer didnt move in Paducah where I hunt they would die, cause it always blows.

find the deer to be more skittish with the wind blowing. They like to use their ears to help detect what's around. As mentioned above, if you can find a draw or back side of hill out of the wind or thick cover, you're going to better your chances. If the rut is still going good, there will be some bucks moving regardless. The thought of "Doe-reen" is too much for those guys to just lay down!!!

I love to still hunt / stalk in the wind.
Start on the south end of your property and slowly wokr north. Seen some of my best bucks on long slow still hunts.

If the bucks are in rut in your area, wind shouldn't matter.
