Default Another ? about playing the wind

OK....so the wind for the area I want to hunt tmrw is coming from the northeast, which is the right wind that I need, however, weather.com says that it will change mid afternoon and come from southeast (which is bad for my evening hunt)So my question is, Is it a good idea to hunt all day in that area since the wind changes by mid afternoon? Should i get out of there mid day?

I'm on the fence with this stuff, the wind is constantly changing directions, so am I to constantly check the wind while Im on stand?

Just like you said, check the wind constantly while your out there. No one can really tell you what to do on this one. If your on stand and the wind changes to the wrong direction and you feel unconfident and uncomfortable hunting that spot with that wind, get out of there.

In jersey we are allowed to bait. If the wind is in the wrong direction I will never see a deer so if it swirls or changes I leave
