Default Feeling guilty about NOT hunting

Hey guys, just sitting here thinking abouthunting in the morning, but I can't make my mind up. Both stands that Im concidering for tomorrow are best hunted with a wind from the North, and if not from the North, a wind from the Westwill do.

Just happens to be lately that I can get a wind from the North to save my life, so that combined with the warm temps, rain, and wind lately, I've beensitting it out, andit's starting to eat at me. Almost making me feel GUILTY that I'm not hunting as much as I SHOULD be.

Im comtemplating going out in the morning. The wind is from the South, and I know it's not good, but IWANTto get out there. Do I sit it out, and wait for later on in the week to hunt the West wind (along with cooler temps), or do I forget the wind, and just go out in the morning and hunt?

What would you do??

If you are confident in your scent control go out and hunt. You can't get one sitting at home.

Well, my scent control consists of hanging my clothes outside, spraying down each layer with scent killer, and attempting to play the wind the best I can. I don't do the Scent Lok and stuff like that.

I am pretty sure that they are calling for the winds to start shifting tomorrow with the cold front moving in. First from the west and later in the weekend from the north.
