Took my coyote call and trusty 223 in the back pasture, hoping for a hog or coyote. The wind was gusting to speeds that worried me in the 10 foot blind. I canít remember it blowing that hard unless it was a hurricane. No coyote, no hog, no bobcat, and i didnít even see my flightless buzzard.

Maybe tomorrow...

They all took "flight" in the wind.

It's howling here. A buddy and I are wanting to go out and do some long range shooting today but we're just playing it by ear at this point. I don't mind compensating for wind, but I'm not a big fan of putting the cross hairs on one corner of the pasture to hit the other corner.

Nothing puts a pasture to sleep like the wind does, everything just holes up.

While I agree that high wind isn't your friend most of the time, you won't know if anything is out there if you don't go looking for it. I have mostly had bad days when the winds were really, but I have had some really good days like this one...
