Default The wind forecast is iffy...

Hopefully this pic works. This is where I'll be hunting in Arkansas Saturday and Sunday. The yellow star is my stand on both the arial and topo maps. The yellow lines are known (to me) travel routes. The arrow is the wind forecast for Saturday, however, Sunday the wind is supposed to shift to almost due south, which would be perfect. What do you think?

Travel routes are one thing when considering wind direction, but which way are you axpecting them to be traveling? Can make a big difference.

It's old, big timber. The canopy is thick, but the floor is pretty clear.

True. I fully expect them to be taking the path indicated by the curved line on the left. If the wind actually is out of the ESE, I think I'll squeak by. If it shifts to out of the south like they say it will on Sunday,I'm good.
